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.]

Les Croisettes

Les Croisettes is a beautiful farm at 1323m about 300m uphill to the south from the Lac de Joux

Prof. J. J. Pirri has been asked several times to get out of this photo of Les Croisettes farm and belatedly responds, 30 March 2003.
