Saturday's postcard: High mountain passage in Norway

How would you like to drive on this road?

This undated postcard, published by Normanns Kunstforlag, features a view of a "high mountain passage" in Norway. It states that the photograph was taken in June. (Presumably, this road becomes impassable during the winter.)

It's possible, though I can't be sure, that this was taken along the Sognefjellet National Tourist Route. According to, the Sognefjellet is the highest mountain pass in northern Europe. At its peak, the 67-mile route is about 4,700 feet above sea level. Along the way, travelers will see a fjord, mountains, rivers, waterfalls. And they can stay at historic hotels that date to the 18th and 19th centuries. Sounds like a pretty dandy vacation.
