Europeans in general are quite health-conscious. There are always people riding bicycles, walking, and hiking. We have joined them, taking opportunities to walk around in this small town (1400 people). It doesn’t take long to get to the edge of town and take the walking paths that go through the farmers’ sugar beet fields or near the Rhine River.

Similar to the Midwest, though, are the corn and soybean fields, the oaks and evergreens, the wildflowers, and lots of pumpkins! We are anxiously anticipating the changing colors of fall leaves!
P.S. More photos of this area are shown in a slide show in the right panel of this blog.
