Wurzelweg

I keep a to-do list of words which I may find useful. I knew yesterday’s word was in it somewhere and it was while searching for that word that I came across another word that I had completely forgotten about. A word which, upon waking up to rain and low cloud, provided the inspiration for today’s photo. Wurzelweg, another word from Germany, literally translated as “tree-root-way”, is used to describe a path that passes through woodland and crossed by semi-exposed tree-roots. We’ve all walked these paths but how many realise they have a special name. This path is on the climb up Larner’s Hill to Capt. Cook’s Monument. It’s part of an old training circuit of mine, following the escarpment to Roseberry. Forty years ago it would taken me less than an hour for this route but this morning it was well over 90 minutes; and I missed the summits. Ah well, tempus fugit.
