I've found some more postcards of Susten Pass that I can't resist sharing, these show the Berghotel Steingletscher which belonged to the same family. The Kulm closed relatively early, and many nights found a few of us hiking down to the Berghotel where there always seemed to be a party. With the citizen soldiers that were doing training up there regularly providing some conversation and lots of good old time singing like I never experienced, except for watching movies. It was worth the hike and fueled by a few beers the way up wasn't so bad either. Ahhh, to be young and vigorous and not waste one's precious days.
From my little room at the top of the pass down to the Steingletscher Hotel, where the good times were.
Top of the trail (in 2017). Back in '76 that glacier would have filled the bottom right corner of this image. I remember having lively debates with a college student who simply couldn't believe global warming was going to impact those glacier in our life time. I've often wondered if she recalls of our debates.
