Dwight Peck's farm photos

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 Correntine

Dr Pirri enthuses characteristically at the small ski-club chalet just above La Correntine, on his way to the Crêt de Mondisé during a snowstorm, in May 2002.

La Correntine farm (1439 meters) is tucked up into a seldom-frequented shelf on the La Correntine ridge leading NNE to the Crêt de Mondisé (1525m), 2.2 kilometres due south of Mont Tendre. 28 March 2004.

Hikers are snapping off photos as they pass below the farm on their way to the Crêt de Mondisé on a stunningly beautiful day in March 2004.

Dr Pirri, tiring of compulsive photography, gives us the 'surly glare'.

Cret de Mondisé. Good reasons to be in Switzerland, March 2004, and not in Iraq. Mont Tendre in the distance.
