A castle around every corner!

Traveling along the Rhine River from Frankfurt toward Cologne last week, we simply couldn't keep up with the cameras. There was a castle (or two) around every corner. Some small ruins and some fully preserved.

You can't really tell from the pictures, but the Rhine really is a massive, fast-moving river. We saw many barges transporting materials up and down the river, going through locks and keeping commerce moving in a very traditional manner.
