Who would have known? A bison (buffalo) ranch in Switzerland, near Bern.

Our daughter-in-law has roots from Switzerland. We found the hometown of her great-great-grandfather. Wangi is located in the northeastern part of Switzerland, not too far from Zurich.
The countryside near the small town of Wangi.
Of course we had to take a picture of some Brown Swiss cattle near Wangi.
We took a cable car from the valley floor up to a Gimmelwald and Murren. These small villages are perched on the side of the mountain and can not be reached by car. We spent a few days in Murren just hiking, relaxing, and enjoying the outstanding Swiss Alps.

Typical mountain cottage.

Mount Jungfrau (young girl).
This is a farmer and his wife turning the cut grass on the side of hill. The hay has to be turned so that it will dry prior to storage for the winter.
On top of the world.
Mount Eiger--once considered to be unclimbable.
Eiger and Monch.
The three peaks, Eiger (Ogre), Monch (Monk), and Jungfrau (young girl) stand next to each other and are quite spectacular.
Mountain pasture with some Simmental heifers grazing.
Who wouldn't enjoy living in a house with this view?
This Simmental heifer was quite curious. Notice the bell around her neck. All of the cattle carry bells which can be heard for long distances.
