A trip across the mountains...

I realized I hadn't written anything here in a long time, so due to lack of time today I will show a lot of pictures and write very little. But that's what most people enjoy anyway!!! These are from a trip I took to attend my Sister's college graduation - congratulations to her again!


The trip started with one of Europe's infamous traffic jams - here they call it a "Stau"...


You pass the main ridge of the Alps when you drive to the south of Austria from the north - fresh snow is very likely here in October...


There are 2 long tunnels on the way, here the entry to the first...

Yes, we've missed you. Love the pictures. The Alps are amazing! Thanks for sharing with us :) So, how fast exactly were you driving while shooting pics?

haha - the "snow" pic was taken at about 85-90 mph
the tunnel ones at only about 50

cheers!
