These are the last of the photos from the Alpage. In addition to the goats and sheep and cows and geese and horses and donkeys that were a part of the parade, there were Saint Bernhards--those storied dogs of Alpine adventure and bravery who rescue hapless folk from the harsh realities of winter in the Alps. These dogs are HUGE!
Here's a bit of information about these mythical dogs of Alpine wonder.
