Peck's farm photos
of the Jura in winter
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.
Coppettes farm (1323 meters) lies high up in an open combe
that runs down to the left, southwest, to the French village of La Cure, with
the long ridge of Le Noirmont up to the right. Late
