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.]
Sèche de Gimel
The ski du fond track, and the farm of Sèche de Gimel, 20 March 2012
The farm lies at 1330m just over a small ridge parallel to the Combe des Amburnex on the Vallée de Joux side of the Col du Marchairuz
