    I feel like there is Cobra 11 just around the corner, waiting to jump in if things go south quickly in these escorts

    Thank you for the tour around Berlin, gripmaster! Very beautiful city! Frogster looks good in all weather conditions - guess because it's what it's been made for! What I also notice is that G-shockers quite good at photography! May be it's just a general feeling of balance and aesthetics, but they somehow manage to express the beauty of the place or action and stick G-shock into it Very beautiful pictures, gripmaster!!!

    OK OK OK.... here we Go, Frogster is back in the Alps and he wanted to see some trails! We are having very low clouds, they start at 1000m and go way beyond 3000 so no summit views just yet....
    But we had quite the adventure anyways:

    New positive Navy Rangeman was leading the way and positively excited to show Frogster the surroundings.

    Frogster got right into Schamaleeohn- mode (Ted Mosby) and adapted to the good old Roclites.

    Snow starts at 1000 or even below, thats actually the ridge or rather the climb to the ridge where I presented the black&white Gulfmaster last week.

    Thats our trail right here on the right. You dont want to fall here, it's almost straight down, about 200m into the canyon below, where we will run back in a little while...

    At the entrance to the canyon, about 200m below the trail from earlier, theres this little flood-gate. It was used from the middle of the 17th century to first block the water, collect wood in the pool that filled above it and then with the big spill of water, the logs were transported down the river to the next such installation. There was quite few of them for a trip of about 12km to the next town. This house here has been renovated in 1802. Frogster thinks that that's still pretty old and that it looks great for its age.

    Very visible here: every winter, once the snow hits, there are massive avalanches coming down the mountain. They actually come down some vertical 1000 meters sometimes, devastate big bands of forest, they also traverse the trail we ran on earlier and make it impossible to pass and then end up down here in the canyon with tons of rocks, earth and trees...

    At this spot the pile of snow and debris was a good 10m high and filled all the valley. Some fearless hikers would cross it, and there would be like a mini footpath on it but it is in fact dangerous and becomes so more and more as it melts and the river which keeps tunneling below it starts to make a cavern that will eventually collapse. So I make it a point not to be here when that happens. So far that has worked out well...
