GERMANY ~Ammergau Alps- Schleierfalle~

Not as spectacular as my last received "fall" postcard (from Sri Lanka)but ever sooo beautiful...
Thanks Anke!! (DE-1633959)

With the common 2011 UNESCO Altstadt Regensburg Stamp.
High lime water leaks from the water resistant rock formation on the hillside of the gorge. Through loss of preasure, warming and mainly through the growth of tuff moss the water deposits lime. The water trickles with countless water drops over the formed lime tuff rocks and looks like a impressive curtain of water.

The Ammergau Alps are a mountain range in the Northern Limestone Alps in the states of Bavaria and Tyrol.
