Went for a hike this morning near Munising in the Michigan UP. Came across this cool waterfall, and took some pics.

Hiking adjacent - caught this Elk on my game cam I keep on my land. When we aren't staying up there, the nature really comes back out. I'm planning on developing a few hiking trails eventually.

Was on our weekly local 6 mile trail walk yesterday IMG_6359.jpegIMG_6362.jpegand came across a 5 point buck in full velvet who gave no shits about how close we were to him.

I fucking love this. Thank you for sharing.
I have a lot more of these pictures. One of the ones I posted was actually from a bike ride. The black bike is my 26" singlespeed "MTB". It's been roughly 76 km (~47 miles) that day.
Yo these pics are gorgeous. Where is this at?
The picture with my bike was technically taken in Poland. The rest are all from northeast Germany. The partially collapsed building is known as the colossus of Prora. When I got there I didn't think that I would be able to get in but found a hole in the fence and ended up spending the entire day there. Is there any interest in more of these pictures?

The lighthouse of Hiddensee:

That double fence used to be guarded and was installed in order to keep people from reaching Hiddensee from where they could have tried escaping to Denmark or Sweden.

Nearby bunkers. I'm not 100% sure but I think they were demolished years ago.

I took my gf there twice. She didn't like it. Said it was way too boring. To me it's heaven on earth. The only region I'd rather be is northern Denmark.

I'm still going through my pictures of Prora. In the meantime... Königsstuhl:


I always park my car in Sassnitz and one of the first things that I usually take a picture of is the lighthouse:

Warning

The chalk coast is fully exposed to natural dynamics. Therefore, there is always a risk of cliff collapses.
Especially heavy rainfall, but also the spring thaw cause such break-offs and can make a stay in the area of the steep shore life-threatening.

Nature is unpredictable.

Can confirm:

Been there more than once:

The main attraction. This is the bit that is known as "Königsstuhl":

Lighthouse doing lighthouse things:

The pier is just over one mile long, btw. Roundtrip is at least 14 miles. 16, if I decide to walk all the way to the lighthouse and back.

on my recent trip to mainland Orkney I took a walk around the east coast of the island with a bit of over 12km.

there's a certain charm about the landscape even with its lack of trees and constant wind blowing in your face
glad I brought my new shoes and walking sticks along.

another trip took me to the west cost around the town of Stromness, around 11km.

It was fine for the most part, but around the five kilometer mark the trail got really narrow and I opted to walk along the beach instead of falling of the cliff.
"Beach" is a loose term, as its mostly large boulders and small seawater pools that I had to get over. I went till it wasn't really possible anymore and jumped a fence at a hydro-electric research plant, then continued to take the road back to Stromness.
Overall, it was worth it and a good exercise. I actually got a light sunburn that day.
In the background is the island of Hoy, which has a popular hiking trail to the Old Man of Hoy, a large sandstone pillar cause by erosion. I didn't go there because of how unpredictable the weather was while I was there.
There's not a whole lot of people around, mostly sheep and cows and endless fields, but I really liked it there.
