Krijtlandpad -- Day 1

6 August 2018

From Maastricht to Mesch. Starting along the Maas river.

Soon you leave the city behind.

Then a diversion away from the river...

...and through Oost-Maarland, with its pretty church.

But quickly the path leads back towards the river again.

Eventually arriving in Eijsden.

And the beautiful Eijsden castle.

Then on towards Mesch.

The Dutch-Belgian border in Withuis. Now only an artistic monument where once used to be an official border crossing.

And then my destination for the day, the Meschermolen.

With beautiful views across the farmer's fields, especially just before sunset.

The hike and elevation profile.
