lake königssee

December 7, 2012

Alright, here’s a short one with some pictures from two trips to Königssee National Park in Bavaria that we did this fall. The first one was THE trip to Königssee – the one where I proposed to Beth. The second one was a week later with our friends Jen and Justin who came visiting from St. Louis.

This little cove at Obersee, a smaller lake just southeast of Königssee, is where I asked Beth - right under that tree... This is literally the last corner of Germany. Everything around us here is already Austria. Sunday, September 30, 2012.
