Although the road is in Austria I was standing in Switzerland when I took this photo.
Kempinski Grand Hotel de Bains.
St. Moritz, Switzerland.
Low cloud covers a wee cafe that’s closed for the summer at a cable car stop above St. Moritz. Not sure why there’s airplane seats stored in it on top of a mountain…
Looking over the lake.
Cable car ride into the unknown…
St Moritz, Switzerland.
Cable car station at the top of Piz Nair, 3,057m (10,030ft).
Piz Nair, Switzerland.
Top of the Fuorn Pass, or Ofenpass, at 2,149m (7,050ft) above sea level. A brilliant drive, both up and down, we hardly met another car the whole way over the pass.
The tiny village of Surlej, just along the road from St. Moritz, is visible through a gap in the clouds from the top of 3,057m high Piz Nair.
The old and the new in the fresh mountain air.
Me at 10,000ft, the top of Piz Nair. The alpine skiing events were held on Piz Nair for the 1948 Winter Olympics.

This blog is a wee collection of my travels, my work and my life in general.
All photos are my own, unless it's a reblog or I say otherwise.
