Part 9 - Ommen to Hellendoorn
From Ommen to Hellendoorn
On this hot summer day, we walked from Ommen to Hellendoorn over the Dutch “mountains,” the Sallandse Heuvelrug. Glaciers pushed these hills up during the last ice age about 150,000 years ago. The moraine is about 14 km long and has different widths. We enjoyed the beautiful views of the surroundings, as did many other hikers and cyclists. The shaved sheep were hiding in de shade, the little dogs doing their best to keep the flock together! We arrived early at the hotel De Uitkijk. After a quick shower and changing clothes, we enjoyed sitting outside in the shade with refreshing drinks before dinner to celebrate hubby’s birthday.
