Jura View

The view of Geneva from near the top of the Jura Mountains in France

The Jura Mountains run along the west side of the basin in which Geneva lies. These photos are of the view from just below Col de la Faucille. In the distance, at the foot of the lake, is Geneva. Note that you can see the Jet d'eau from this point--about 15 miles from Geneva.

The Jet d'eau can be seen from nearly 15 miles away

Our ultimate goal was Col de la Faucille, on the other side of the radio tower at the top of the mountain in the bottom photo.

View of the Jura and our goal: that radio tower!
