To be fair, they also call it the stone gate
Went for another hike this weekend, this time to a mountaintop rock formation known as “The Devil’s Gate.” With this, and the Devil’s Rock we visited a couple of months ago, I am left wondering why the otherwise pious people of Alsace are so eager to attribute the more interesting geological formations in their part of Creation to his Satanic Majesty.
I also do not know what to make of this statue, which marked the beginning of our hike. Is it, perhaps, the Devil’s Zipper? Making the forest behind it the Devil’s Boxers? The mind boggles.
