Passo dello Stelvio

Harry Unte shared this with me today. His photograph from a long time ago. Nice.

The Passo dello Stelvio is the highest pass in Italy. It is situated in the Alps Retiche, to the north-west of the Montuoso group of the Ortles-Cevedale. Many consider it scenically the nicest of all the Alpine passes. It is possible to climb the Stelvio from two different sides; from Bormio and from Prato, both in Italy. However, it is also possible to reach the Stelvio from Switzerland, namely from St. Maria; see the Passo Umbrail (2501 m). From the starting point Bormio, one can go to Mazzo di Valtellina, the starting point of the Mortirolo.
