You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

It's early April and the snow's already long gone, or nearly so.

We're out for a walk, 3 April 2005, stalking about in the pastures south of Mont Tendre to get some new photos for our Farms of the Jura series. This is La Foirausaz (1336m) [see map below.]

Farther to the northeast, the Pré de St-Livres (1359m)
