The sound of cowbells and the call of the alpine farmers are coming ever closer. The cows had their fill of the lush alpine meadows throughout the summer. Then September is the time to return home. Beautifully decorated with flowers, ribbons and big bells around their necks, the cows are driven down the mountain. Here and there the alpine farmer has a runaway, another cow deposits an "alpine pizza" along the way. The spectators marvel at this unusual migration. The cows couldn't care less. Soon they are back home, and the sound of the cowbells is only a memory until next year.
