Peck's farm photos
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 Perrause sits on a bump (1353m)
on the flats to the northeast of the road between the Col du Marchairuz and
the Vallée du Joux. Approaching from the southwest on a very chilly
