Peck's low-res 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.
The Chalet des Combes (1488 meters) lies along the cross-country
ski route from Marchairuz to Mollendruz.
