The Black Forest gets its name from a canopy of trees so dense that the woods seem dark, pierced only by shafts of sunlight. Mushrooms sprout across the damp forest floor. But the bleak name Black Forest — Schwarzwald in German — does not capture its beauty. My family and I camped there late last summer, near the village of Enzklösterle, in one of hundreds of valleys scattered across the forest's vast, mountainous expanse. The forest stretches across 2,320 miles in southwest Germany, an easy trip from Frankfurt. Once our tent was erected, beds inflated and our 3-year-old daughter had achieved her goal of muddy feet, we sat and relaxed in the sunshine with cool German beers. The next morning, I was assigned mule duty and burdened with our small picnic rucksack, while my partner was the heroic steed, carrying his daughter in a backpack on a six-hour hike. Mushrooms of all shapes, sizes and shades emerge from rotting tree stumps and leaves in vivid crimsons, delicate corals, black, brown, purple and orange. One rainy day, we drove an hour to medieval Schiltach and another half-hour to the town of Triberg. Triberg also boasts three claims to fame: cuckoo clocks, Black Forest cake and Germany's highest waterfalls.
