Peck's low-res 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.]
Croisettes is a beautiful farm at 1323m about 300m uphill to the south from the
Lac de Joux
J. J. Pirri has been asked several times to get out of this photo of Les Croisettes
farm and belatedly responds, 30 March 2003.
