While we had mostly nice weather for the first part of our trip, this stint in Alps territory has been fairly chilly and rainy - down to single digit temps at times. We are now on the so-called "Romantic Road". Overall, the Alps are very much like the Rockies, except with a lot more castles.

After a brief overnight stop in Augsburg, which felt like a college town in summer (fairly empty streets), we drove into Rothenburg. Half-timbered buildings, an ancient wall circling the town, a historic castle from 970 AD, costumed players re-enacting medieval scenes in the main square - how much more Bavarian could it get?
