    Typical Bavarian style house. I couldn't believe how many solar panels were in the south. It does explain how Germany produces over 15% of its electricity through solar however.

    weird sign I didn't bother to read(which I should have) on the way up a murderously narrow road. It designates which way the direction goes. On the way down, we had to pass a car. Think Top Gear Bolivia special, it was that close.

    Three point turn switchbacks on the way down

    Prize on top of the hill. Castle ruins Falkenstein.

    thanks guys. Yes we had a blast. The weather was amazing and considering it rained for a full two weeks prior to us arriving we lucked out big-time. The only bad day was when we visited the Zugspitze. I was pretty sick of driving afterwards however. There are almost no automatics over there, and Krista can't drive stick.

    Fun Fact: Travel on Sundays if you go there. Semis aren't allowed to travel on that day.

    You may need to friend Krista to see them. She posted everything on her account.
