SCHOENAU AM KOENIGSSEE, GERMANY - OCTOBER 05: Bavarian herdswomen Christine Bauer (L) and Paula Amort lead their cattle on a path to a boat that carries them across Koenigssee Lake during the traditional cattle drive (in German: Almabtrieb, or Viehscheid) on October 5, 2013 near Schoenau am Koenigssee, Germany. Every fall herders across the European alpine regions return cattle that spent the summer on alpine meadows to farmers in the valley villages. Many villages celebrate the return with folk dancing and other customs and adorn the lead animal with a garland if all of the animals survived the summer. (Photo by Lennart Preiss/Getty Images) less
