What were able to see of The Black Forest was absolutely beautiful. We stayed at the Pension Vogelbacher which is near a little village called St. Blasien. We were unable to do a lot of touring of the area due to having to be in Basel Switzerland by noon yesterday and we arrived late Saturday evening near St. Blasien.
We arrived to the Pension Vogelbacher near St. Blasien Germany late Saturday night about 7pm due to being stuck in traffic in the German part of Switzerland because of a truck turning over in the Gotthard Road Tunnel. We had to sit in traffic for over an hour. The St. Gotthard Tunnel is the 3rd longest road tunnel in the world, just under 16.4 kilometers (10.5 miles). The Gotthard has two lanes, one going each direction. It’s only 10.5 miles, but when you’re a bit claustrophobic those 10.5 miles seem like 100! Then on the way home last night, no accidents thankfully but ran into quite a bit of snow and a thunderstorm.
