Jura's answer to the Alps
already celebrated beautiful Mont Tendre, one of
the two really nice peaks in the southwestern Jura mountains near Geneva, we turn
now to La Dôle, with its aeroport radar facilities on top.

La Dôle, like Mont Tendre, so valued by former Alpine-dwellers in this corner
of the world? Answer: Trees. That is to say, NO
Trees. Mont Tendre and La Dôle are the only peaks on the southwestern
end of the Swiss Jura Mountains that stick out of the tree line! Like La
Chasseral and the Weissenberg in the northern Jura, it's a little mountain that
-- in the right light, in the right weather -- sometimes feels like a mountain.
