Next on our agenda was a drive through the Black Forest. I shall skim over the confusing, frenetic drive through crowded, trafficky Baden-Baden in search of a way OUT, and tell you that the Black Forest is lovely and, this time of year, not at all black. As we were driving along I noticed patches of white on the verges and wondered aloud if they were some kind of flower. The astute Canadian in the car responded promptly, “That’s snow.”
Autumn colors and an October snowfall….to a California girl this was mysterious and enchanting, as if being in the Black Forest wasn’t enchanting enough!
