Upon crossing the Lienne Creek at Chauveheid, the 11th Panzer Grenadier Company halftracks eventually drove uphill to where you are now where soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, 119th Infantry supported by four M-10 tank destroyers and three 57rrm anti-tank guns knocked them out. In radio contact with his Panzergrenadiers, Peiper ordered them back across the Lienne then turned his entire column back through Cheneux to the grounds of the Chateau Froidcour.
Photo is taken towards the river. German halftracks appeared on the road comming from the left where the guard rail ends. They then turned towards the camera and started uphill.
Beyond the gas station is the Neufmolinbridge which was blown. And the bend beyond the bridge is where Peiper had to turn around.
