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 Pouilleuse

A grim 15 February 2003, peeking at the La Pouilleuse farm out of the forest, a short steep march up from the village of Le Vaud (861m).

La Pouilleuse lies at 1007m on a shelfy sort of thing in the middle of the forest leading up towards the Perroude du Vaud at 1371m. The paved forest road can be found at the extreme left side of this broad meadow.
