Crêt de la Neuve in early December 2006

Winter 2006-2007 spent waiting around for winter


Early December 2006 -- a brief early snowfall, and hopes are rising for a snowshoey winter. We're walking out to the Crêt de la Neuve today, no artificial aids needed yet, just some nice Gore-Tex boots from the thrift store and a trekking pole, but it looked briefly like a good start to the winter.

The carrefour of hiking paths, including the "Europäischer Fernwanderweg / Sentier Européen -- Pyrénées / Jura / Balaton", and of course the Chemin des Crêtes from Germany through the Jura to the French Savoie.

The nominal summit, 1494m altitude.

Sacred and Civic Iconography, side by side.

The observation deck again. As I write this on 28 December 2006, there's no snow up there now. Its All Gone!

We're going down towards the Petit Prés de Rolle now, to make a loop back to Marchairuz

Coming back into Marchairuz, just at nightfall. 10 December 2006.
