Saturday drive through the Alps

After a fun Friday night, Annie and I packed up and left beautiful Innsbruck for an indirect route to Zurich which included driving back through the Austrian Alps back into Southern Germany to see the Neuschwanstein and Hoherschwangau Castles.  We passed by several ski areas including Garmisch, home of the 1936 Olympics and hopeful host of the 2018 Olympics.
