As I climbed into Switzerland the temperature dropped below freezing. I do have an idea of what dangerously cold feels like from snowmobiling in Canada. When the subzero wind gusts started to slap me around the road, I beheld just how treacherous the Alps could be. I rushed back down to the valley on the other side before frost bite set in.
Arriving in a small town named "Bitsch", I had the choice to follow the narrow valley to the east or west. Having done no research whatsoever, I rolled the dice and headed east. When I found locals snowshoeing up the road, I conceded that I would have to turn around. Challenge accepted for another day. Later on Google I realized it was the infamous Furka Pass.
The wind gusts on this bridge were monstrous
