June 08, 1996 - Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse, Austria.
The Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse toll road (ATS170) starts in the town of Galtür in the East and ends in the town of Partenen in the West. Just West of Galtür, a road heads up to the Zeinisjoch (1842 m asl) before coming to a dead end at the Speicher Kops; a reservoir and dam. Further West, at the Bielerhöhe (2036 m asl) and Silvretta Stausee, the highest point along this road, the parking area was filled with tour buses, cars and motorcyclists. A Honda Helix (scooter) with enough mountain pass stickers covering the body work that you couldn't tell what color it was, made a very rare appearance. Suckers for punishment do exist.
