Farms of the Jura in winter

The Jura mountains run in a southwest-northeast direction along the border between France and Switzerland, from Geneva (Genève) to Basel (Bâle), holding at about 1300-1400 meters altitude (4350-4500 feet), and peaking in the range of 1650 meters (5450 feet). These photos of high alpage farms in winter are mainly from the southwestern end of that range, between the cities of Geneva and Vallorbe.

La Conriéry

That's a lovely farm called La Conriéry (1073m) with a Fuji zoom

We've started off from the route principal between Arzier and St Cergue near a place called La Fréterette, 14 March 2010, and now we're beginning our day with a pair of cute farms nearly side-by-side: our first one is Les Agozats (1080m) on a pasture that's half snow and half swamp at this point.

Now we're on our way across to La Conriéry in earnest, beautiful from this angle, from the west.

The south side of La Conriéry -- we're circumambulating the building to get the best photo-angles.
