A very cool statue in Salzburg outside the main church
At the Augustiner Brau in Salzburg.
Also at Augstiner Brau
When you get to Augustiner Brau you pick a mug. There's a pretty wide selection.
No, this does not dispense beer (although I got excited when I thought it might do that). You use this to rinse out your beer mugs before filling the stein.
Those mugs were the equivalent of 3 beers.
A low-quality shot of Salzburg at night.

One of the castle walls.
One of the main entrances.
One of the rooms in the castle. That's me and Helen.
Passage into the "gold room". They did not let you walk on the original floors or touch the walls.
Yep. It's an "in-house".

There was a ton of military stuff on display. This was an old radio station from WWI.
That's a mortar - it came up to my hips

The river was incredibly clear, although there was a bit of a haze from the rain before.
This was the small falls...
It's not easy doing a rocky hike with a toddler. It was a half an hour walk.
Mark and Niki - without them this trip does not happen. And yes, they are more athletic than we are.
That's a good 25 foot drop off to the left.
This was the bigger falls - it went much higher than you can see here.
