© National Geographic Society Finlay Photographs by Bernard F.Rogers, Jr. HERDERS AND THEIR FAMILIES LIVE IN SUCH CRUDE HUTS WHEN THE COWS GRAZE ON HIGH PASTURES Cheese makers on the Furka Pass discuss the quality of their product and wonder whether the patchesofsnow on the peaks above indicate an early autumn (left). One man holds a " Swiss harp" for stirring the curds in the caldron, while the otherhas under his arm asmall cheese ready for market. Callers on the housewife (right) would expect "Alpine tea"-clotted cream or curds. Pigs, goats, and cows occupy the "addition" under the stone slab roof, while the family lives in the left half of this home on Klausen Pass. A goat rests in theshade on top.
