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.

warned -- a few farms are represented on these quiz pages more than once.
no time limit on this -- there's nobody with a stopwatch grinning and itching
to disqualify you. So if you want to take a break and improve your score by dusting
off your old skis or snowshoes and going up next winter to verify your answers
first, there's no penalty.
