September 2015 - A small trip
This is samnaun:
 
Samnaun has an area, as of 2006, of 56.2 km2. Of this area, 46.1% is used for agricultural purposes, while 11.7% is forested. Of the rest of the land, 0.9% is settled (buildings or roads) and the remainder (41.2%) is non-productive (rivers, glaciers or mountains).
 
The municipality is located in the Ramosch sub-district, of the Inn district. It is located in a left side valley of the Engadin valley, at an elevation of 1,700–1,840 meters. It consists of five village sections; Compatsch, Laret, Plan (Plaun), Ravaisch and Samnaun.
 
In the 19th century, Samnaun could only be reached by road from Spiss in Austria. Thus Samnaun was excluded from the Swiss customs territory, and retains a privileged 'duty-free' status, albeit not without controversy, in the twenty-first century. The exception was maintained even after a road was built in 1905 linking Samnaun to Martina in the Inn valley. //en.wikipedia
On the beautiful meadows, one has no other choice than to make a little break.
By the wayside, I spotted this little friend. He was not disturbed by me and I was able to sneak up, make some great shots.
