On the way to the highest mountain in Austria, the Grossglockner, we came face to face with this scene. A whole heard of cows walking on the edge of the mountain. Wow..the drop must be so far down, but these cows were so brave and so cool.
The farmers here let the cows loose in the summer, and hence they are free to walk wherever they want. They are all tied with a bell around their neck so that they can be heard. Is that why the guys who take of these wonderful animals are called "Cow He(a)rd-s".
