Suvi and I went for a walk up Rubihorn in the heat. We did a loop from Oberstdorf up Rubihorn, down the other side to the Geisalpsee, and back around the side of the mountains. It took about seven hours-ish, and was punctuated with ice cream half way up, lunch on the summit, and a short swim by half of the party in the lake on the way down.

Above right: Suvi was terrified that she had orange hair after seeing her hair in a photo. It became the topic of conversation many times throughout our walk. It’s not orange, is it? Or is it?!!

In the evening we ate out with Frauke in Oberstdorf.
