Farms of the Jura in winter

The Quiz (2)

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.

15 More Stumpers

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 on these quiz pages more than once.

There's no time limit on this -- there's nobody with a stopwatch grinning and itching to disqualify you. So if you want to take a break and improve your score by dusting off your old skis or snowshoes and going up next winter to verify your answers first, there's no penalty.

That's Dr Joe sitting on that roof. The cross-country ski track should make a good clue.
