Mountain Castle

If you were a superheroine, could you choose a better mountaintop fortress than this one above the now-pricy settlement of Topanga Canyon?

1787 Mountain Castle

You stand at the rail on the little rounded second floor balcony next to the saucer and survey your realm. You wander those private paths and walking trails. Entertain guests in the gardens or the great rooms. This is your castle. Your sanctum in between heroic deeds, sheltered by the massive boulders with their immovable sandstone softness. But in my comic moment the image pops in of that saucer detaching like the old Men In Black movie, and whirling our heroine off into space. 🙂
