my favorite road — Stelvio Pass — South Tryolean Alps -- Italy
Passe dello Stelvio – Stilfser Joch
Taken in August 2006. Located in Northern Italy, near the Austrian and Swiss borders (area was formerly in Austria, they speak German there still) called Stelvio Pass (Italian: Passo dello Stelvio; German: Stilfser Joch) in Stelvio National Park. In the area between St-Moritz, Switzerland and Bolzano, Italy.
