Hangman – it was the week of Halloween. Noticed a lawyer’s name on the letter box next to this.
House – an old but still inhabited house in Mutzig
Chapelle Notre-Dame des Sept Douleurs (Heilighiesel) – unfortunately not a peaceful place as it lies next to a busy road.

Rocher du Geissfels – where this narrow trail took us to
The tree revenge – metal blended by the growing tree
Many leaves from various trees
Changing direction but staying on the marked trail
