The valleys of the small streams Hulle and Houille belong to my favorite hiking places in the Belgian Ardennes. Early October I made an overnight trip and spent the night under the tarp next to the Hulle. The forest was desolate. I didn’t met any other hiker, forester or hunter. A few deer which came inspecting my tarp during the morning and a couple of kingfishers along the Houille and the small fish in the river water were my only company for short moments.

It was a gratifying trip since I haven’t been making any hiking anymore during the last two months due to my knee problems. Unfortunately the pains reappeared during the hike but meanwhile I could enjoy another enlightening overnighter in nature.
