The image stone that lives up to its name!
At an altitude of 1134 meters above sea level it has a fantastic view of the Schluchsee and on a clear day you can even take a look from here down to the Alps. A visit to clearer weather is of course the most beautiful installation.
The image stone is a great pulpit rock of granite above Aha on the Schluch. Although the rock barely protrudes from the surrounding forest, it is impressive how suddenly opens up the forest here and it also occurs on the massive rock pulpit. You can reach the Stone via a steep path of Unteraha from or far more comfortable and almost at ground level via a walkway of Fischbach. If you hike the Gorges or Jägersteig on foot, comes with a small but rewarding trip over here.
Emergence of Schluchsee glacier:
There is winter on the Schluch. Snow, ice and freezing temperatures currently are reminiscent of its origin, because Schluchseewerk is a child of the ice, more precisely, in fact, a product of the last ice age. This began years ago 115,000. Year after year it was colder, the temperature finally dropped to 10 degrees below the current level. And it snowed for centuries, millennia, above 1000 meters, even in the summer months. The piled-up snow thickened, crystallized to firn and eventually turned into the shimmering blue glacier ice.
Is hanging glaciers formed at the highest elevations Schluchseer - from the Upper Habsberg about the Schnepf stockpile to lying about Äule silver rock band head, Bildstein and Klingelefelsen. The individual glaciers united Schluchsee glaciers crept into the Schluchseer basin down and finally filled it completely with ice.
Also from the Feldberg area huge valley glaciers had already gone on tour (described in Genser / Grimm: traces of the Ice Age, 2005). One filled the Barental with ice and came to a halt at Neustadt, another wandered from the Bärhalde about Altglashuetten into Haslachtal and pushed over the Windgfällweiher enter also into Schluchseetal.
Schluchseewerk glacier eventually filled 20 000 years ago, the peak of the last ice age, the whole valley with ice high in the southwest up to the top layers, in the northeast up to Fischbach, Olpenhütte (windmill) and Faulenfürst. In Seebrugg the ice pushed onto the Hochstaufen and shared. An arm reached the Schwarzatal down to almost Brenden and the other over flowed Rothaus and ended at Schlüchtsee.
Even the Steinatal reached down a tongue of the glacier Schluchsee. The forester's house in the Sommerau stands on a terminal moraine, the infallible proof that there ended a glacier. Schluchseewerk glacier thus had a length of about 15 kilometers and was three to four miles wide. Schluchsee, however it did not exist yet, the ice sheet with a height of 200 meters, towered where is the lake today. Like all glaciers was also Schluchseewerk glacier in motion - in our case to the southeast.
At its sole entrained rock was frozen solid, the abfräste the terrain at the unimaginably high weight of the ice like an oversized grater. In Schluchsee was the weight of the glacier is the largest. He prospected like a giant planer from a three-kilometer long, 500 meters wide and 30 meters deep basin. The pool was indeed 20 000 years ago already finished gouged, but still hidden deep under the ice.
The withdrawal and climate change, as the last ice age (Würm) came to an end, remained from Schluchsee glacier back a lock of heaped moraine. Thus, the valley was blocked and dammed the lake.
Then it was warmer year after year. The glaciers melted slowly, the glacier retreated gradually. As it was then become ice-free even in Schluchsee 15 000 years ago, the pool was revealed that the glaciers had gouged at his advance in all these years. It was rapidly filling with the melt water, which was so out of the glacial ice in vast quantities available - and Schluchseewerk was born 10 000 years ago. Source: Wikipedia
Embark on the 2 following, closely spaced stations and please answer me the following questions:
Stage 1: N 47 ° 50.440 E 008 ° 08.250
Here you can find next to a informative information board and a boulder. Look carefully and please answer the following question him:
- What you can see on the boulder that he was transported by a glacier?
Stage 2: N 47 ° 50,473 E 008 ° 08.221
Now you have reached the highest point and can be enjoyed on one of the three banks the magnificent views. Please still answer me the following question. Here again an instructive information board to find.
- Above the stone image, superimposed on the granite ye may know more loose and solid rock layers. What can you tell me about top layer? What do you think, what has happened here over the years with the rock? And of what age we are talking about here?
- Optional: Using a photo of yourself or your GPS device on the Bildstein I would of course be very happy! .

10. Oktober 2016 Die Batzen hat den Geocache gefunden
Unterwegs auf dem Jägersteig haben wir auch diesem schönen Fleckchen
Erde einen Besuch abgestattet und konnten durch sich hebende Wolken den
Blick auf den fast verwunschen wirkenden See genießen.
Danke fürs Herführen!
