Yesterday was the first day of the quarter, so what did I do? I went for a bike ride and a hike! It was such a nice day, I couldn't resist. Plus, my assignments weren't even posted yet so I didn't feel too guilty. And finally, the weather was really bad during most of my time off, so I had to enjoy it while I could!
I decided to finally take a walk around the Alpsee. I've been there many times before, but I'd never walked the Alpseerundweg. It took me about an hour and it was well worth it. It's one of the largest, cleanest, deepest, and most beautiful lakes in the area, and that's saying a lot. When I first moved here, I was told that it's rated as being clean enough to drink.
The Lech river looked spectacular yesterday. Check out how clean it is. Just beautiful:
