Happy Windows Wednesday!
The story of this castle is far more interesting than my photo of it. It’s massive and when this Scandanavian beauty was designed in 1928 it was with the stipulation that no trees were to be disturbed so it meanders and is tough to take in as a whole so I got close instead. There are no nails, it maintains it’s grass roof, the stonework and woodwork are amazing and it commands a view of Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe, California.
There is a very long history of this place starting in the 1860’s and culminating in 1929 when this structure was completed. Look it up on the interweb thingy, it’s got a lot of history and some of America’s richest folks had a hand in it.
