    Hi Gnil - fantastic pics like always
    That last pic looks to me as if you'd taken it on the road between Arcegno and Ronco

    Re: Pics in the alps with snow

    Gorgeous pics, make my famous zeals (country-road and Porsche) reappear after wintertime.

    Did you remove the model designation?

    Pics are making the wait for the next skivacation look very long... Only a month ago we were in Italy in Breuil-Cervinia wher we had a fantastic skivacation even skiing to switzerland (Zermatt, Ripfelberg, Gornergrat...) Fantastic!

    That explains why Switzerland hasn't been invaded down the years. They just put up signs forbidding Tanks!

    Probably something they started doing after Hannibal crossed the Alps with his elephants.

    That and charging 40 Swiss Franks for a "Vignette" for using the Autobahn.

    Re: Pics in the alps with snow

    Great pics, Gnil! Thanks for sharing.





    BTW, I also have a wonderful photo for you all, my dear rennteamers:

    Re: Pics in the alps with snow

    Gnil, wonderfull! I think I never saw the simplon, though I have been on the Susten, the Grimsel and the Furka. Pretty impressive scenery. Too bad I didn't see any porsches back then. Your pictures make me miss the alps. Luckily, I'll be visiting them end of this month, but with another point of view...

    Nearly.... it' s on Monte Bré . You seem to know your way really well in this part , but not surprising as Ticino is nearly a German province

    Yes, it did, a long time ago. I did not like all the Carrera 4 S writing in the back..

    ....and now the speed traps they are installing everywhere. We will finally be able to keep all these foreigners out of the country once and for all

    The mountain on my last pic is a well known spot for Delta, Para glides and Para sails.
