Hiking Over the Stony Sea

Berchtesgaden, Germany

Atop the Berchtesgaden Alps is a broad limestone plateau called the Steinerne Meer, or Stony Sea. Hiking across this terrain can be quite tedious and frustrating as the eroded limestone creates sharp rock, crevasses, and all sorts of rugged obstacles to carefully negociate.
