On a fairly warm, early autumn day in the valley near the Partnach gorge, the surrounding peaks received their first dusting of the season. The transition of the seasons was in full swing in the Bavarian Alps, as illustrated in this view towards the King's House on Schachen (Königshaus am Schachen) and the Partenkirchener Dreitorspitze, a prominent 2,633m (8,638 ft) multi-peak in the Wetterstein mountain massif. The small castle, built by Ludwig II of Bavaria, can only be reached by a three to four hour hike. It's perched on ridge in front of the gap between the Dreitorspitze on the left and the Oberreintalschrofen on the right.
