The first part of the route was basically through an area of roadworks but not as we know them in the UK! Gradually, as daylight grew, the gradient steepened and we began to see a some largish drops on the outside of the straight bits. As the drop-offs increased, the road began to deteriorate further and it began to get just a little disconcerting....

|What a place for a breakfast stop!|

Looking back it was without doubt one of the most memorable days of my life and if we ever go back, the Sela Pass is a must do but we'd hope for more birds next time.
More images from the day are here.
