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.

Le Bugnonet

Broad meadows 3.5 kilometers above the village of Bassins, at 995 meters altitude, bisected by the Route des Montagnes that leads from Bassins (750m) 9 kilometers up to the La Bassine pasturage (1261m) (18 December 2004)

We're walking a circle around the farm, as is frequently our wont, looking for good camera angles, 4 February 2006.
