following the Gulp river

I started at the Begian border in Slenaken (Sjlennich) and followed the river through the valley, as much as possible at least, because I was forced uphill several times. I didn't go a certain route or trail and crossed many different walking paths on the way; many butterflies though, mainly gatekeepers, and I met no people as long as I stayed away from paved roads which I had to approach towards the end, nearing the town Gulpen.
