Encountering bald eagles in French châteaus

All good things must come to an end and so to does my adventure in the Alsace region in France. But not without a visit to a couple of more amazing castles.

Nevertheless, my human road companions soldiered on and checked out two chateaus including one of the most unique we’d ever been to! While…
