Alpine Pick Me Up
Hiking in the Alps is a pretty magical experience. The white peaks, blue skies, and lush green valleys could take your breath away. But if a hiker gets lost, they might get into a lot of trouble. Weather is unpredictable in the mountains. Storms can roll over a pass and dominate a once peaceful scene in minutes. Avalanches can trap unsuspecting explorers. Over the years, many people have gotten lost in the wild range. And that's where the iconic Saint Bernard dog comes in! In the 18th Century, Saint Bernard Hospice was on a treacherous path run by monks whose jobs it was to keep travelers safe in the mountains. With their thick coats and sharp sense of smell, Saint Bernard dogs were bred especially to find people after bad snowstorms. Over a couple of hundred years, the dogs saved thousands of people. And while the monks on Saint Bernard pass now use helicopters for their rescue operations, the dogs will always have a place of dignity in the heart of Alpine countries.
