The Bovine

The Bovine

Went hiking a couple of years ago in the Vosges mountains in Alsace, France just above Lac des Truites.

Apparently, the name of the lake is actually a mistake. Since this area has gone back and forth between the French and the Germans many times over the past centuries, when they translated the name from German they mistook the german word for pine with the word for trout. Understandable and fairly minor considering the land changed hands four times in seventy-five years.

Anyway, the cow is definitely french. For the record, I went around it.

My other photographs of Alsace can be found in the gallery.
