From Vaals to Gulpen.
First crossing back into the Dutch part of the town, with the border simply marked by some metal posts.
The old church.
And then the old town center, with many beautiful buildings.
Then back into the hills.
A view of Holset behind the corn fields.
Dark weather was moving in quickly!
But luckily I was close to Vijlen...
...where I sat out the heavy downpour in a little cafe.
Soon after the sun came out again, so I continued on my way.
One of my personal favorite spots along the entire hike.
Just before arriving in Gulpen, a last little climb up the Gulperberg.
With a view of the Wittem monastery.
A statue of Mary.
And view over Gulpen.
With a pretty church.
And my accommodation for the night.
The hike and elevation profile.
