European Trip - Part 7
To get from Zurich to Zernez, you have to "suffer" through this kind of scenery.
Hotel Spol in Zernez.
Taxes? We don't pay no stinkin' taxes...
Zernez is full of these manicured houses.
From Zernez we went for a hike in the Swiss National Park.
This hotel is the only establishment inside the park boundaries.
Santa Maria, where the road from Ofenpass and Umbrail meet. The alley that leads up to Umbrail is very easy to miss.
Going up Passo dello Stelvio from the Trafoi side. Bad pavement, lots of traffic (busses and trucks included), hairpins and spectacular views.
The Ortles, from Stelvio's top. The peaks top 3900 meters.
Going down from Passo dello Stelvio towards Bormio. Still single lane, but much better pavement.
and more spectacular views.
The train runs on Poschiavo's main street.
Passo del Bernina. Fast, excellent pavement, one of the best roads in the Swiss Alps.
If you have time to look around while riding Passo del Bernina, it also has a nice view of Palu.
GTS at the top of Julierpass.
