Neuschwanstein in the fog

OK – so today we were supposed to see Neuschwanstein Castle, which lies at the terminus of the Romantic Road in Germany and not far from the Swiss border. This castle was commissioned by King Ludwig 11 of Bavaria and would be familiar to anyone who has ever scene the opening credits of a Walt Disney film, as this castle formed the basis of the WD logo.

However, today it is raining. Again. And rather cold. Again. And foggy. In order to see the castle, one must walk up the mountain road to get to it. By the time we reach the base, we are all of us unprepared for the weather and the feat that lies ahead. So with the expanse of Switzerland to traverse before reaching our accommodations for the night, we opt to photograph Neuschwanstein from the fog below. I would suggest you visit wikipedia for a better view of this magnificant castle 🙂

    OMG! I wish I was there with you guys. It is a gloomy, foggy, rainy day here today. I am so sick of this weather. Dave is in Whistler this weekend and the girls are all at various friends houses, so I am kind of board. I think I’ll just hop on a plane and join you. Love all the pictures, keep them coming. Glad to hear that all is well with everyone. Miss you terribly.

    Love,
    Jen
