Dutch Mountain

Last Sunday I climbed a mountain recently created in our village Almere Haven. When you live in a flat country as the Netherlands it is always exciting to see something that towers above the ground.

I started to walk up the 32 meters high mountain.

Together with a sheep.

On the top are some seats to enjoy the views around.

And a monument dedicated to the godfathers of  our city Almere as the architects, designers and managers.

A view at the colouring autumn woods.


The sheep seem to enjoy the mountain very much too.
Linking to "Our World Tuesday"

  1. Maybe the sheep are there to help keep the vegetation from blocking the view?

  2. In flat country it must be satisfying to view the land from this vantage point - Happy Tuesday!

  4. A man made mountain, that's interesting. I like the sheep around the mountain, makes it all very real.

    Loved your photographs, and the weather did look nice too.

    All the best Jan

  9. That's a nice view. I guess I never thought of the Netherlands being flat so this mountain must be popular for people.

    I didn't get blown away yesterday. :) The storm wasn't as strong when it reached us. Cork felt the most of the impact with severe winds and lots of people lost power which will take days to restore. Glad that's over with.
