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.

Grande Enne

Grande Enne lies at 1294m on an isolated little ridge just SE of the main Marchairuz-to-Givrine crosscountry ski track (which passes at 1278m on the map below), between Le Vermeilley and Les Pralets. It's seen here in a vigorous snowstorm on 4 January 2003.
