American Akitas vom Wächterberg

Hike around the lake Geierswald

In beautiful sunshine, we went on the way to a bit longer walking tour yeasterday. Our usual Christmas Walk with friends and Akitas had failed this year, apart from that we only had rain here in Saxony.
The Geierswalder Lake, an artificial lake that was created from a former lignite mine is located northwest of Hoyerswerda. It is the first usable tourist lake in the future Lusatian lake district. The opencast mine was flooded with water from the Black Elster and the recent renovation work ended in 2004. In 2006 the lake was opened to the public. Investors argue about the public use of the land and it remains to be seen how much the environment of the lake will be exploited commercially. At the moment, the landscape is still pretty wild and unrefined.
A beautiful bike path leads around the lake and so we thought that this tour could also be ideal as a dog trail. Finally, we walked significant 21 kilometers. Jane and Shadi have enjoyed the trails right on the water, as can be seen in the pictures.

    Ein sehr schön geschriebener Beitrag zu dieser Wanderung. Am liebsten hätte man dabei sein wollen. Aber 21 km? Ganz schön viel nach den Feiertagen.
