in pontresina we took an hour-long open-air horse carriage ride through the roseg valley up to a restaurant with views of the roseg glacier. the air was crisp and fresh, a welcome change from the tour bus. our route followed the beautiful stream that originates at the glacier and we saw a lot of alpine walkers and cows. each cow wore a large bell and the sound of the herds carried throughout the valley.
