St Gothard memories

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

It does not seem possible that I took this only days ago. Taken on the St Gothard Pass travelling uphill towards the summit tunnel and Andermatt. Looking NW towards the 'Poncione di Valleggia?' in the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland. Forgive the extra tuning :) Go on treat yourself - view full size!
