Beautiful Tower and View

The observation tower at Longhorn Cavern State Park is more elaborate than most I've seen. The building is made of native limestone and blends well into the picturesque setting.

I like the design detail in the windows of the stairwell leading to the top deck.

And, the views at the top are spectacular!

I couldn't help but notice the huge building in the distance. John said it looked like a castle and he was right. It's called Falkenstein Castle. As it turns out, this is one of three castles in the area!

I'm sort of amazed by that...and baffled at the same time.

  2. Beautiful architectural design for the Tower, such lovely details. I had no idea there were castles in Texas - interesting.

    1. I had no idea about the castles either. It looks like most of them are used as wedding venues.
