A Hike Up to Burgruine Hohenneuffen, Neuffen, Germany

After seeing a very large looking castle off in the distance from Anja's village of Schlaitdorf, we decided to go see it today.  Anja was the chauffeur, and she drove Mallory and I to a parking lot to where the trail starts up the "berg" where the castle is located.  (GPS was not much help in getting to the parking lot, as it took us to two different places where the road was closed for construction!)  We walked (about 45 minutes) up to the castle.  When we got near the top, I shouted, "Anja!  There are cars up here!"  Apparently you can drive up to nearly the top if you approach from the other side. Anja just smiled, and indicated it was "pay back" for once taking her on a lonnnnnggggg bicycle ride to the Apple Butter Festival in Grand Rapids, Ohio, when she was living with us.  She continued to laugh about my discovery of the cars at the top for the remainder of our hike up (and down).
We stopped for a drink and a snack at the castle.

This is the view we had from our table...Schlaitdorf is off in the (far) distance to the right.

Anja stopped laughing about our hike (and discovering the cars/parking lot) long enough to pose for a picture.
