Castle Neuschwanstein, Bavaria, Germany
Ludwig II’s fairy tale castle, as it is sometimes called is the climax to the “Romantic Road” trip through southern Germany into Bavaria. Autumn was in full blaze when we arrived the evening before. Snow was forecasted to be moving in and the small town of Schwangau, we decided to stay in, was completely fogged in. The next morning of our planned trip to the “fairy tale” castle didn’t look to promising with everything still fogged in. I guess the weather gods heard our cry for clear passage, for by noon the skies had cleared into a beautiful blue day, which allowed us to hike higher into the mountains above the castle and catch this shot. Made you feel like you were in a dream, sitting on top of the world.
