Moving to the top

Alp Braunwald

It's part of transhumance that you move the animals to different meadows in different altitudes (and then back). In Braunwald, one of the villages that has no car traffic, the Streiff family moved to the highest pastures on July 18. Up there it's really steep, and it can happen throughout the summer in the Alps that animals fall to their death.

And with cheese making it's the same with other tasks: It's easier done while listening to music...

Marching to the top pastures
Above everything...
...where Gentian...
...and Edelweiss bloom
It's steep and dangerous
Walking on the Karst
After a long day: dinner over the fire
