If I have to translate the meaning of Schwarzwald in English, it is actually compose of two words “schwarz” which means black and “wald” which means forest. It is simply called Black Forest in English. Do you know why it was named like that? It is because the dense growth of conifers in the forest blocked out most of the light inside the forest.
We just happened to pass this place as we drove from Zurich, Switzerland to Strasbourg, France last winter 2010. This amazing view of nature truly fascinates me. I thought I can only see it in postcards but I did saw it from my naked eyes.
