Silvretta dorf


Last day at Imst but brilliant blue skies after the overnight mist cleared. Riding directly to the Silvretta-Hochalpenstraße but over the Danube-Rhine watershed at the Arlberg Pass (1793 m.), which is a busy trunk route so not much fun. Then up the hairpins to the Silvretta Pass from the west side. The pass at 2037 m. is a view of glaciers over a lake behind a large dam. Some rowers from Britain were unloading serious gym equipment from a couple of vans: they’re there for training at altitude.

The east side is a much more pretty valley and then a series of ski villages. A hotel in the highest village served me a tasty apfelstrudel. Then a straightforward run down the valley and back to Imst for the last night activities: a Tyrolean folksy entertainment with a DJ playing ooompah versions of europop music, dancers in lederhose and much beer... “What happens in Sumercamp stays in Summercamp”.
Byebye Imst, with thanks to all the organisers.
