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.

Looking north at the Swiss Alpine Club (CAS) Cabane du Cunay and, just behind it, Geneva airport radar facilities. [Now, in 2014, there's a fancy high-tech tower up there as well.]
