Farms of the Jura in winter

The 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.

Les Agozats

Les Agozats (1080m) is on a pasture that's half snow and half swamp at this point, just off the route principal between Arzier and St Cergue near a place called La Fréterette, 14 March 2010.
