Staying On The Path Might Save You

I had a remarkable experience a few weeks ago when I was cycling through the Deer Park.
The Stags were busy sweeping their antlers among a group of trees.
I stood quietly watching the impressive show.

When I was about to cycle, an older stag suddenly came towards me from behind.
Terrified I watched him walk right past me with only a few meters in between but all of a sudden the danger was gone and the awesome impression was all that was left.
It wasn’t me he found interesting but some trees on the other side of the path worth fighting with.
What a relief to find myself ignored ūüôā

The rangers recommend visitors to stay on the path, to avoid stressing the animals
Furthermore, the red deer might hurt you seriously should you get in the way.

Hubertusjagt , The Drag hunting

J√¶gersborg Dyrehave byder p√• mange historier, og naturligvis er haven blevet optaget p√• Unescos Verdensarvsliste ūüėé

Jeg har haft mange forskellige oplevelser i haven: En t√•get morgen, hvor jeg knap kunne skimte slottet; ¬†en dag, hvor regnen silede ned, og dyrene gik t√¶t forbi mig, imens de gr√¶ssede; kronhjorte, der badede en steghed eftermiddag i august; en vinterdag, hvor sneen fik udsigterne¬†til at minde mig om Norges fjeld; og ikke mindst min opdagelse af kolerakirkeg√•rden og forbindelsen til Hvidtj√łrnesletten.
I kan læse nogle af historierne, der ligger som links under billederne i dette indlæg.

Der er mange gode og spændende ture, jeg aldrig havde forventet at opleve i et landskab, der er så kultiveret.

M√•ske er det magien ved at tage p√• tur; at f√¶rdes p√• naturens pr√¶misser og v√¶re √•ben over for nye indtryk –

Nu har jeg pr√łvet en Hubertus Jagt. Det var et rent tilf√¶lde, jeg erfarede jagten fandt sted, og min nysgerrighed overvandt min trang til at s√łge mindre bef√¶rdede naturomr√•der.

Dyrehaven var tilgæld så overbefolket, at jeg kun kunne se korte glimt af rytterne. Det kan jeg godt leve med, fordi jeg så en masse glade mennesker, som havde hver deres fest midt i trængslen.

P√• Eremitageslottet overv√¶rede¬†Frederik og Mary¬†begivenheden sammen med deres b√łrn.

The Deer Park

J√¶gersborg Dyrehave offers many stories, and of course, the garden has been included on UNESCO’s World Heritage ūüėé

I have many different experiences in the garden: One foggy morning I could barely make out the castle; a day when the rain poured down and the animals went close past me while they were grazing; red deer, bathing on a hot afternoon in August; a winter day when the snow made the landscape look like the Norwegian mountains; and especially my discovery of a cholera cemetery and the connection to the Hawthorn plain.

I never thought one could¬†experience that kind of things in a landscape that cultivated. Maybe that’s some of the magic when you are out for a walk,¬† to get about on the conditions of nature and be open to new impressions.

Now I have tried a Hubertusjagt. It was pure coincidence, I learned ‘the hunt’ took place that particular day, and my curiosity overcame my urge to seek less crowded ‘wilderness’ areas.

Busy, it was in the Deer Park that day, and I only saw brief glimpses of the riders. I can live with that, because I saw a lot of happy people having their own private party going on.

Frederik and Mary and their children were watching the event from the castle.
