The road from the Zugspitze to Füssen, two German destinations, travels partly through Austria.
There were two places where I took a photo:
The first was near the Austrian village of Bichlbach, in the Tirol province of Austria, and I found its setting simply nice to look at:
The next photo turns its back on Bichlbach and looks at another village:
The next few photos simply scan the mountains and remind me I am running out of daylight!
The second was a Medieval castle, still in Austria. This is not a romantic-road castle built by Bavaria's King Ludwig, but the real thing, built for defense:
Wikipedia shows a nice photo from closer by. There is also a nice discussion of this 13th century castle here.
The next turn found me nearing Füssen and so I headed for two of the castles built by Ludwig, hoping to catch them while there is enough sunlight for outdoor photos.
