Far beneath the triple peaks of Jungfrau, Monch and Eigar lies the small Swiss village of Lauterbrunnen. A popular tourist sight year-round, but in the summer it’s completely devoid of cows. Where are all the cow bells I’ve been reading about so much? It turns out they’re grazing at 2000+ metres, completely out in the open and unafriad of humans — they watch as you pass by with a mixture of indifference and watchfullness. These two were particularly curious though, approaching me as I passed. I think they just wanted to be on camera.
