Neckar River Iced Over

January 13, 2009 at 12:59 PM 4 comments

As I mentioned in my last post, we were surprised to see the Neckar River, which runs through Heidelberg, had large frozen sections in it. Since today it got above freezing for the first time in at least 9 days, and probably since at least the 29th of December (when we got back – I think it’s been below freezing since we got back), I decided I should get these pictures up ASAP. Also, I still need to share the rest of our pictures from Texas before we go skiing this weekend, because I’m sure we’ll have many new photos and stories to share when we get back from that.

So without further ado, here are the icy Neckar River pictures followed by some from the hills around Heidelberg and Königstuhl, which is at the top of the hill next to Heidelberg. The final photos are of John’s new sword he got from work. It’s a replica of an old Bulgarian sword.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

    so pretty!! y’all should try snow-shoeing, it’s a good workout and you can go into the woods/fields without sinking in snow.
