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.

Le Sollier

Le Sollier farm (1290 meters) lies along the farm road leading from the far side of the Col de la Givrine out towards Les Coppettes, about half an hour on snowshoes. Here it is on 30 December 2003.
