Tannheim Valley, Austria Almabtrieb/Viehscheid

My friends Kai & Frogger were in town from the states and we headed down to Austria for the Almabtrieb along with my friend Julia. An Almabtrib or Viehscheid is the ceremonial driving down of cattle from the mountain pastures into the valley in autumn. It's also the time when the cows dress like they do on butter wrappers.
