on the gravel road

We are now on the dirt road, about in the lower third of the Umbrail pass road in the Val Muraunxa. With a FMX650 Supermoto its of course fun riding up here.

view up to the pass summit

This is the same location as the left but the view is  rotated by 180° clockwise. We look up to the pass summit, which is at the  end of the Val Muraunxa.
