View from Furker pass looking across the Valley to the Grimsel

The ride down Furker Pass and up the Grimsel has to be one of the most beautiful and exhilarating rides available.

      1. Well, it is beautiful but I certainly meant because it looks like a fairy-tale place to visit. : ) BTW We are hoping to go to the Dordogne Region this summer or early fall. The comments were closed on your article so I thought I’d respond here. Loved the photos! I haven’t been to France in a few years (last was in Nice) so I am looking forward to it.
