Lietava Castle Hill
The ruins of Lietava Castle, between the Sulov Rocks (Súľovské Skaly) and the city of Žilina, Slovakia. The castle hill (635m) is just a couple of hundred metres tall so I turned it into a little challenge: we'd hiked across the hills for a few hours from near Rajecke Teplice and were ascending the castle hill at high noon as the mercury climbed to thirty some degrees Celsius.

Lots of pics

Aha, that fire lookout like a tiny castle plus the man-made and nature-made in harmony. I guess the geomorphologists of the year 10,000 may have a problem telling the former from the latter:)
