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 Palud

The farm of La Palud (evidently, 'the swamp') at 1067m, with a crosscountry ski track from La St George running right by the front door. 22 January 2006.

A passing snowshoeista contemplates La Palud farm and samples his frozen daiquiri.

Much later on the same day, La Palud from the northeast.

We've joined a cross-country ski track to improve our mileage.
