Summit and winter activation report: DM/BW-851, Winterwald (southern part of Black Forest, Germany)

Dear all

Looking for a day trip over Christmas, I remembered the list of recently introduced summits in the DM/BW region. One attracted us by its name and the vicinity to Switzerland. Winterwald, a promising name in the German language for endless forests, covered in bright snow. We met this little paradise on December 29, 2017.

Winterwald, DM/BW-851, is the peak of Ahaberg, a ridge along Lake Schluchsee. We had a splendid day at the sun, in the forest . . . and a good meal after the activation in the cold.

Many thanks to you, chasers, making this visit a SOTA success, too!
