Lenzburg Castle

Guess what?  I'm in Switzerland!  Never thought I'd visit here, but here I am.  Kind of a sudden trip.

Took a little walk today after work.  Walked up the hill to Lenzburg Castle.

Fascinating to see what men built many years ago.  Almost timeless, certainly in comparison to many modern buildings that won't last nearly as long as this place.  The castle is really built into the mountain itself--I hope the pictures capture that.

Here are some pictures that I took with my crummy cell phone camera.  The first picture is from April 8, 2013, the rest are from today, April 9, 2013.  Enjoy!
