Sophienhöhe mal wieder :)

Am Samstag war es zwar morgens noch eher grau und ungemütlich, gegen Mittag kam dann aber die Sonne zum Vorschein. Wir haben das sofort genutzt und haben mal wieder eine kleine Runde an der Sophienhöhe gedreht. Dieses mal auf der Bergheimer Seite. Mein Mann hat hier auch schon Fotos davon veröffentlicht.

 

Indeaue, November 9, 2014

Living in Niederzier, we are surrounded by opencast mines. One of them is the Inden opencast mine just about a 10 minute drive away. After RWE (the power company that is mining there) is done, the former mining areas will be renaturalised. Some turned into farmland, some became the new riverbed of the Inde. There are really nice walking trails along the Inde as long as you don’t mind the bucket wheel excavator and the power plant at the skyline! In the future there will be a lake, too. It will take 30-35 years to fill it up with water!

So here are some links with more information and some photos I took!

Some information about the opencast mine.
