We tackled the pass today and made it to Italy! Woooo! The climb wasn't so bad. Breaking it into 2 days was a smart idea and worked well. It gave us time to rest, enjoy the sites, stop for pictures, and catch our breath. We started at 1400m and worked our way up to 2350m. My highest climb yet! I was pretty excited.

The hotel is full of photos of the Monte Carlo Rally which evidently goes through here. The road both up and down is hard work, desperately in ...
... A series of broad well-surfaced lacets (hairpins) sweep down the valley and our speed and our mood improves.
The weather doesn't though, and after several more passes the thunder starts and huge raindrops begin to fall.
We are only 10 miles from our destination, a hotel in the tiny village of Rimplas perched high above a river valley on ...
