Greetings Michael. I feel honoured that an Austrian who loves his mountains and skiing has given this the YS treatment!! Thank you very much.

And may you have a great summery weekend too, Nick.

It is interesting, Nick, the way things fade in my mind. I recall well the landscape but had forgotten that it was snow-covered at the time. My son drew this scene in his logbook and he used plenty of white coloured pencil - can't argue with a son or a camera!!

There is a very slow revisiting of slides from our first wonderful year in Europe going on. A recent message from "Lucie A" - Annie of the Pyrénées - simulated this revisiting.

I have found the changes, from then to now, in the vegetation especially some reforestation, and of course the road system interesting.

Regards,

Ian

Thank you for your visit, Qianlong. The Pyrénées are a long way from both you and I, but once visited they can never be forgotten.

Greetings from Australia to Taiwan.

WOW! Your film is in a very good shape, I suppose, Ian. As if you had just visited it yesterday.

Thank you Ah-Pong. Yes, I have always kept my slides in plastic suspension pockets, and I don't have much dust and no mould, so I am pleased. Many of my images were very well used, but as often as I could those that needed to be in the classroom were duplicated for that purpose.

But back to the image, - Thanks again for the awards!!

I trust all is well with you. Warm regards,

Ian

Great picture Ian, nice to see the curving road in the snow. Greetings Berend

Ian Stehbens on June 5, 2011

I think many people from Netherlands have driven this road, heading south looking for mountains and sunshine, Berend. At least that is what we encountered in the camping grounds of Spain.

Warm greetings,

Ian

I was in Pas de la Casa in September, and it was a feeling that the place is colder and less snug and cosy than the rest of Andorra. Yet in winter, I imagine it might be a nice place for wintersports enthusiasts.

Ian Stehbens on January 5, 2012

There certainly were many skiing enthusiast at the Pas when we passed by. As our visit was some time ago, I am sure that as things have changed, the area has become even more popular. Andorra is certainly on the right side of the Pyrenees - I wouldn't want to live in a little valley on the French side - it would have prolonged winters.

Thanks for you visit and comment, Jürgen.
