After the , this long weekend was perfect for an extended mountain pass ride: Brünig – – Furka – Gotthard – Nufenen – – Susten. Starting from the Lucerne side, the Grimsel was on the tour from both sides.
Of course I used my GPS data logger (see “Combining GPS Data Logger with Google Earth“).

In Gletsch, view to Rhone Glacier. Furka Pass is on the top right.
On the way to Furka, view back to the road from Grimsel where we came from.
Bottom of Rhone glacier: global warming meltet the lower parts away.
Still lots of snow and Ice on Gotthard Pass. Can you spot the person doing Ice Fishing in the Pass Lake?
View down from Gotthard Pass to Airolo. Will go to the right to the Nufenen Pass
