Every summer, Swiss farmers take their cattle up to the mountains where they spend the summer grazing on the vast mountain pastures in fresh mountain air and eating a summer diet of nutrient-rich grasses. This old tradition survived to this days in many alpine parts of Switzerland. If you found yourself in those areas during the summer months, it is highly likely a cow or herd of cows will cross your path. Here are some of the those I’ve meet during my trips to the Swiss Alps:
This summer my husband and I spent some of our weekends exploring Swiss Alps. One of our trips brought us to Grimselwelt, an alpine region in western part of canton Bern covering the Grimsel and Susten pass roads as well as the mountain areas nearby. This was our second time in the area and for sure it’s not the last time.
