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.]
Sollier farm (1290 meters) lies along the farm road leading
from the far side of the Col de la Givrine out towards Les Coppettes, about half
an hour on snowshoes. Here it is on 30 December 2003.
