view towards Disentis

We are here in the Upper Rhine valley riding to the west with the direction to  Disentis. In the background you can see the Oberalp Pass. Disentis is already at 1,140m/3,740ft altitude and is the entry point to the Lukmanierpass. Here the road was completely refurbished, but later on gets worse and very tight. Watch out risk for accidents.
