... and goats as well as various farm buildings. We travelled through the Arlberg tunnel which is 15 km long and the 4 the longest in Europe. There was snow on the side of the road and in paddocks as this was a little higher. The temp ranged from 6 to about 14 degrees but it was lovely in the sunshine.
