Day Hike in the Swiss Hills

Along with all the physical activity of working on the farm, we also spent quite a bit of time running around in Ticino and parts of Italy.  After our first week of working at l'Orto, Mauro invited us on a hike in some nearby hills where we could make a day hike.  It was really great fun, and as you can see, Martin and I had quite the job to keep up with Luiza!  We also coined a new phrase during our extended excursion to the top of the nearby hill, it has a nice Polish-Slovak-American ring to it, but in English the term is: Cow Mountaineering.  Can you say moooo?
