Geocache Description:

"Drive in Cache" speziell für Motorrad Fahrer (und andere...)
"Drive in Cache" especially for motorcyclists (and others...)

Der Col de la Forclaz ist jene wichtige Hauptverbindung zwischen der Schweiz und Frankreich, welche über einen Alpenpass geführt wird. Er verbindet die beiden Orte Martigny und Le Châtelard. Von dort geradewegs weiter über den Col de Montets (F) nach Chamonix (F). Über 1000 Höhenmeter steigt die Strasse bis zur Passhöhe an. Der Ausblick in die umliegenden Berge ist grandios, besonders aber beindruckt mich immer wieder der Blick zurück, tief hinunter nach Martigny, wie aus der Vogelschau-Perspektive.
Und übrigens: Der Cache befindet zwischen 1-2m Höhe

Col de la Forclaz is the main one of the passroads leading from Switzerland to France. It connects Martigny (which is also starting point for Grand St. Bernard Pass) with Le Châtelard, wherefrom the road goes straight on to Col de Montets (F) and then to Chamonix (F).
And don't forget: The cache is between 1-2m above ground.
