Day 2 Continued

Breakfast at 7 again, then off to ride "Around Andermat", a six pass loop and ending back at the hotel.
I meant to take a photo of the sign indicating the way Susten Pass in Wassen. No billboard type affair, it was about like the street
signs in my subdivision. It wasn't hard to find though (especially when you're following someone who knows where they're going),
there weren't many crossroads in the town.
The agenda for the day: Susten, Grimsel, Furka, Gotthard, Lukmanier and Oberalp passes.










I have to remind myself that mountain passes aren't all big dramatic affairs like this one (in Colorado)



Sometimes the road just kind of flattens out



There were a couple of times I had to turn around after I went by the pass sign or when I saw Marc and Jürgen parked.
But of course the road to the passes was great.



We came a cross a nice pair of Triumphs





A small galcier



When you're on the road you never know what the restrooms will be like



I don't normally see many (any) Aston Martin's in my part of Arkansas



It was the time of year when the cattle are moved down from their summer pastures. Not a big deal in some places



Some places it is



Cow bells as big as a 5 gallon bucket



It clouded up as we returned, but didn't look like rain



Meat and potatoes for supper



Jim
