Superba panorama. Am fost si eu pe aici dar ploua si nu mi-a iesit nimic (era si ceata). Ar trebui sa te plateasca pentru reclama! E mai frumoasa captura decat realitatea!

The passes through these magnificent mountains are astounding; this is an example. Mike went over the Simplon Pass in 1958, and when we went over it together 40 years later, I was able to grasp the beauty!

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks Judy... Yes, I know, I loved those passes too...it's an amazing experience to drive on those. I haven't seen Simplon Pass, but drove a few others besides Grimsel, such as Julier Pass, Oberalp, Furka...etc... Unfortunately, this photo here it's not quite that good, due to the fact that I was facing the sun... In the morning would have been a better time for such shot, but...

very beautiful place, I'm surprised that there isn't more snow.
did you drive all these curvy roads?

@Yair Karelic: thanks Yair.. it was end of Summer, so probably most snow melted... yes, I went all those curvy roads back and forth, and several others as well....
