    What are my first impressions of Switzerland? Well, there is a grand view as soon as I reach the pass: another deep valley far below and a beautiful mountain range on the other side, with forest ending abruptly, and sheer gray rock rising towards the sky.

    There is a marker and a plaque explaining the historical significance of this pass, which has been an important connection between Switzerland and Italy for many ...

    ... Up ahead there is a mountain albergo which I figure I should check out. Last night was a bit chilly camping outside, and tonight I'm going to be at a much higher altitude. The albergo is, as expected, out of my price range--but tempting... Then the trail climbs... up... up... up zigzagging through the forest. Daylight will fade soon, so I pick up the pace, hoping ot make it to Campodolcino before nightfall, where hopefully I can find ...

    ... and rougher until in disappears altogether alongside the river... and I find myself heading back to San Giagomo a third time, feeling quite frustrated with myself. And then, when all seemed hopeless, I spot the markings of the trail Splugenpass trail in between the houses... Yep, it's for real this time...

    ... opt to set up my camera along the railing of the bridge and run down to pose with the guitar on a walkway along the river. Probably a foolish decision--as a somebody could bump the camera... and there'd go all the pictures and videos I've taken over the last couple of days... I continue on through the town, past a refurbished castle and an open area where you can gaze up at terraces and houses perched high up on the steep mountain slopes. This ...

    Day 274 1 hr, 1 km With the steep, wooded mountainside to my left and a valley that is quickly narrowing to my right it's only a few hundred meters and I'm in the next town, Messe. I know that the uphill climb is getting close, including my big goal: to cross the Splugenpass from Italy to Switzerland on foot. I know it was just planted here for the warm months, but seeing a banana tree in someone's yard just feels really unappropriate. C'mon folks, this is the ...
