Bavarian Woods

Ah! That time of year for VACATION photos! Looks like this will be a multi-parter because I have to find my second camera. In any case, this post has trip photos taken from the Bavarian woods along the Czech border. We stayed in a pension near Bayerisch Eisenstein. In the past, this area was known for its huge glass-blowing, glass-etching, and mirror polishing industry. They needed lots of fuel for those furnaces. With mechanization and globalization, these days it’s mostly just tourists coming for the crisp mountain air.

Small brook running into Amersee- so much running water here!

A pyramid made from drinking glasses- tribute to the glass history of the town.
This wins the award for “Best Organized Woodpile”.
Brilliant signage- keep this in mind as you stack wood.
