I hope to make a lot of beautiful pics too in 3 months when I visit Switzerland. I hope that passes over 2000 m will be opened in early June. There still might be snow then.

I've traversed the following passes:

Bernina Pass 2328m
Brünig Pass 1007m
Furka Pass 2431m
Grimsel Pass 2165m
Julier Pass 2284m
Maloja Pass 1815m
Susten Pass 2224m

I hope to clinch the Gotthard and Nufenen in June, maybe some others too, depends on the weather.

Actually I'm almost sure, that Vršič will be closed at that period, especially if there will still be some snowfall. And some other passes probably will be closed too, there is still too much snow in the Alps.

US 40 - Rabbit Ears Pass




US 40 - Berthound Pass




US 50 Monarch Pass (frequently closed in winter due to heavy snowfall)


US 285/CO 9 in Fairplay, CO (this is the real life version of South Park)




More of Fairplay, Colorado



CO 9 - Hoosier Pass

Interesting videos by ChristianSwiss.

The first video follows the Furka Pass in Switzerland from Gletsch to the summit, the second one follows the road down to Realp.

Notice the contrast on both sides. The western approach is quite well constructed with a wide roadway and only a few hairpins. The eastern side is narrow, sometimes even too narrow to pass simultaneously, and lacks proper safety installations.
