Moving to the lower meadows

The Amacher family has left Botchenalp on the weekend and moved the animals to the lower meadows where they will stay for a while. Only the cows that gave birth and are “dry” – meaning they don’t provide milk anymore – have been moved to the winter home in Brienz.
The cheese cellar has been cleared as well and the wheels brought down to the village.

A last glimpse back to the chalet on Botchenalp.
Walking down through the forest.
On a narrow path.
The cheeses are transported to Brienz by cable car.
the cellar will be empty soon.
