Crazy Fun History

Today's blog post has been inspired by a neat booklet found with my maternal grandmother's photographs. The booklet is about the ski town, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in the state of Bavaria, in the country Germany.[1]. The town is located "...at the foot of..." Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain, at 9,724 feet.[2]
