St.Oswald - Blick vom Hoher Stein
Sankt Oswald-Riedlhütte is situated in the Donau-Wald Bavarian Forest inside about 6 km north of Grafenau and is adjacent to the Bavarian Forest National Park, as well as the Czech Repuplic. The 1380 m high Plattenhausriegel in the border ridge between Rachel and Lusen forms the highest point of the municipality.
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!
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.
