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.

Sèche de Gimel

The ski du fond track, and the farm of Sèche de Gimel, 20 March 2012

The farm lies at 1330m just over a small ridge parallel to the Combe des Amburnex on the Vallée de Joux side of the Col du Marchairuz

Looking southwest . . .

. . . whither we'll wend now.
