Part 2 - The Swiss Passes

[  ]
Descending into the cloud on the Glaubenbielen pass.

[  ]
The Sustenpass provides a lovely drive along the mountainside.

[  ]
South and onto the St. Gotthardpass. Turn off the new road (seen on the left) and pick up the old cobbled pass.

[  ]
St. Gotthard statue at the top.

[  ]
Turn between the buildings to stay on the old pass and begin the descent.

[  ]
Nostalgia

[  ]
Now that's what I call hairpins.

[  ]
Fantastic drive, takes you back in history.

[  ]
Louvered bonnet, connled road, hairpins and steep drop.

[  ]
Roadworks keeping the road maintained. It is frequently closed.

[  ]
On top of the Nufenenpass. (Thanks to Mike for emailing this super picture)

[  ]
On the Furkapass, with the Grimselpass in the background.

[  ]
Ascending the Acherlipass, heading east. The road atlas has it marked "difficult or dangerous section of road". They weren't wrong.

[  ]
Single track climbing up the steep valley side.

[  ]
The pictures don't do justice to the unguarded drops.

[  ]
It levels out at the top.

[  ]
Cows on the road.

[  ]
Then a steep descent. There are barriers on this side of the mountain.

[  ]
Still single-track. The hairpins are very tight. 1st gear, full lock. The Morgan needs all the road from barrier to rock.

[  ]
Jeff on the Klausen Pass.

[  ]
Consulting the map in traditional style.
