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.

La Borsatte

The farm of La Borsatte lies at 1165m just above and north of the village of St Cergue, and 200m meters below the Fruitières de Nyon.

Stymied by deep snow, 1 February 2015

Back to La Borsatte later the same day, where, happily, a whole group of snowshoers have laid in a proper track up to the farm.

Dr Joe -- his first good look at La Borsatte farm. For what that's worth.
