Another way in and out of Stockheim on the road to Kleingartach, which is on the other side of the Heuchelberg.

This is a nice view of The Zabergäu from a lower elevation. Behind the forest of trees in the center right is Brackenheim, Lauffen, and Heilbronn.

If you unfamiliar with The Zabergäu please “Click Here” for a detailed and historical discussion written by Uli Pfingstler von Lauffen am Neckar.

Here you see three of the four modes of transportation. The bicycle, the motorbike, and the auto.

The fourth Mode is one you can't see, and that is of the photographer, who is on foot and walking.

One sees so much more when walking.

8% Grade Down To Niederhofen and/or Haberschlacht... No problem goin’ down, but coming back up at midnight in mid-winter... No fun...!

From the barracks we all come to this point. Left and down the hill is Niederhofen, and to the right, and again down the hill is Haberschlacht, but much closer.

Pictured here is Neil Watson and yours truly, we usually chose that walk down the hill and through the woods to the Gasthaus Rose in Niederhofen.
