rescueDAYs 2014 – A Side Trip and Then To Heitersheim

This year rescueDAYs is being held in the southern part of Germany in the town of Heitersheim.  This is located near the borders with Switzerland and France.  This area of Germany is where my family;’s ancestors are from so I set out to find the Rickenbach namesake area of Germany.

It took a lot of driving on hilly, twisting, back country roads but eventually I found the town of Rickenbach.  It is just a small town, but here are a few pictures. Clicking on the picture will give you a larger image.
