HANNA'S WALK

The Meadow and The Birds

I hear the lark on the open meadow. Lark song makes my heart rejoice. I look at the blue sky and up there, portrayed as a troubled spot on heaven’s vault, it sings to high heaven.
It happened in March, but lasted all summer.
Now swallows practicing with their chicks. They are the masters of abrupt turns.
Never do I see a clash. Unbelievable.
I think, they all fly together towards the south.
A cheering thought ❤

A Walk in Klevads Mose

A wonderful experience being back in the bog, Klevads Mose.
The landscape at Klevads Mose is part of a river valley.
Trees were cleared back in 2009 to restore the original river valley.
Both fens and grasslands exist in the valley, and this provides an exciting and varied animal and plant life.
The cattle are keeping the trees down and prevent the valley from being overgrown.
There is a little house at Klevads mose, where you can enjoy the view and eat your lunch.
There are several trail systems in the area, both in the forests Ganløse Egede and Ganløse Ore, as well as paths that runs between Buresø and Furesø ¹

The Oldest Oak in Northern Europe

We did this walk, while the heat wave swept across Denmark!
I’ve read about hiking trips in Corsica. “GR 20 – the toughest long distance trail in Europe”.
It’s mountainous terrain, but the biggest challenge is to get enough water.
Here comes my point; I craved for water on this walk in Denmark.
The planned route is about 10 kilometers. But it felt like 20 kilometers a least.
Just like a hike on the GR 20 at the end of the stages –
The reason for our visit was three very old oaks, the oldest of which is still alive.
King-Oak is the name of the tree and the age is between 1,500 and 2,000 years old.
A genuine Ent!
Northern Europe’s oldest oak tree, Quercus robur subsp. robur.
Location: 55;54.621N+11;59.356E

Don’t forget your lunch and lemonade and leave only your footprints behind ❤

Which path would you choose?

We can go for a walk, but only on the big paths!!
It is not the first time we have that exchange of words my friend and I, but that’s just an expression of differences between to people.
Well today I’m alone and I can pick all the twisted and odd paths I might find and I’m thrilled. I choose new paths I’ve never walk before and get a new view to lakes due to a different angle.
That finally brings me along a small path between newly sprouted birch trees to a point on a hill beside the biggest hill we have in Denmark in North Zealand; Maglebjerg.
Here I find a beautiful granite stone, but without the inscription on the geodetic measuring point on Maglebjerg. The only marking is a large engraved X on the top of the stone.
X marks the spot! I can still see the path below between the beautiful fresh beech leaves.
Only the song from the birds can be heard that’s all.
On a day like today this spot is worth a visit.

Gallows Hill, Devil’s Bog and Tinka’s Christmas

Tinka’s Christmas Adventure was an advent calendar on television for children last year.
Many scenes took place by the lake; Brænteljung.
The lake is artificially landscaped and a great success for breeding swans.
On a day like today the scenery actually is like an adventure.
There are many sunken roads in the forest created by the past’s traffic with ox or horse-drawn carriages.
Gallows Hill speaks for itself, fortunately, there are no leftovers from the past but a small hill by the road with newly sprouted beech trees.
Devil’s Bog is nothing but a wonderful bog.
Or so I hope! 🙂
