Farms of the Jura in winter

The Quiz (3)

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.

Look at each photo, think about it for a little while, consult with your friends if any, take a guess and write it down -- then click on the photo and count 1 for "right", 0 for "wrong". Count -1 for guessing the wrong country.

Be warned -- a few farms are represented more than once.

The wall paintings ought to be a dead giveaway.

That's Mont Sâla on the horizon. A subtle clue?

That's Mont Pelé on the horizon. Is that a clue?

That's Mont de Bière Devant on the horizon. Is that, too, a clue?
