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.
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.
