Almbach Canyon
Germany

The Almbachklamm was formed approx. 15,000 years ago by the melting of the glaciers of the last ice age. The melt water as well as precipitation water cut into the old land surfaces connecting Ettenberg and Maria Gern. The Almbach rises between Rauhenkopf and the Berchtesgadener Hochthron in a high valley. As time passed by the Almbach digged a deep canyon and the hard rock (Dolomit and lime) was washed out by detritus until the water reached todays valley ground and flows as a branch into the Berchtesgadener Ache. The most common rock in the canyon is the bright Raumsaudolomit. Lime and Dolomit are the most important rocks at the Untersberg. Here remnants of sea organisms enclosed in the rocks can often be found. The Dolomit is rich of magnesium, making this rock hard and rough, so it cannot form karst any more. But it is very sensitive to weathering: water blasts the rock during the freezing process and detritus formation results.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
