Jura Mountains


The Alps and the Jura Mountains cover more than half of Switzerland.
The small town where I live is close to Jura mountains, the Alps are in front of me, on the other side of the lake.
Jura mountains are not as high as the Alps, they are rich of forests and pastures lands.
Actually the name “Jura” is derived from the Celtic root "jor" which was latinised into "juria",
meaning forest.
It takes me only 20 minutes driving from my home to get there
