Wandering in Weiselberg

Today Sabine and I visited Weiselberg to do the Wieselberg:Steinernes Meer (Stoney See) Earthcache (GC2EZJR). This was a very cool location.  The Weiselberg is a 280 million year old volcano and since the Roman times has been known for the precious minerals which can be found here. Minerals such at Agate, Jasper, and Chalcedony were mined here from the 1500’s until 1950 when Germany declared it a nature preserve. We walked about 4.25 miles in total. When we started out it was cloudy and cold but later it warmed up. It actually snowed a little bit while we were at the top which lies at 572 Meters.
