A few pictures of the Grossglockner Pass a month or two ago in the Vitara.
Due to a late arrival and low cloud only managed a few pictures at the top of the pass...…

The Grossglockner High Alpine Road (in German Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße) is the highest surfaced mountain pass road in Austria. It connects Bruck in the state of Salzburg with Heiligenblut in Carinthia via Fuscher Törl and Hochtor Pass at 2,504 m (8,215 ft). The road is named after the Grossglockner, Austria's highest mountain.

Looking at the current webcam pictures the pass is now closed due to snow and can see why they have these on stand by.....

With the pass re opening in May I hope to go and try it out with a bit more snow in the back ground and certainly recommend you try it too if ever travelling near Austria
