Alpen Schatz das ding an dich.
More Alpen Schatz.
Popcorn Alley, the long-ago bordello district.
Mysterious - must be an Art Shot(tm), or, more likely, a through-the-window shot.
One day we took the Pinzgauer tour - Dave's Adventure Tours - up the mountain to Imogene Pass. What follows is about 50 pictures from that tour. It was about 2 1/2 hours up and about 1 1/2 hours down. Quite a bumpy and perilous-looking ride. No way you could drive this unless you were in a jeep or some sort of ancient Austrian army vehicle, as we were.

The merry troupe.
The view just keeps getting better. We had glorious clear warm weather.
At the top is an incongruous mailbox, which serves, apparently, as target.
Our trusty red monster.
Dave and Dad at the pass - 13,114 feet.
Jaunty Dave and questioning Dad
Flowers and snow

I liked our trusty red monster
Red Rocky Mountain Truck and Cowgirl
Gerhard and I scrambled up a nearby pile of rocks - you could call it a hill - and this gave me a chance to get some perspective on the size of the truck versus the mountains.

Time to head back down that dusty road
Flowers everywhere - at this altitude in mid--June, it's early spring
If you go to Telluride, call Dave for a tour! 728-9749.
