So yesterday, we spent another afternoon at Vallée de Joux … to enjoy the two frozen lakes near Le Pont. But this time, I did not join the hubby on Lac de Joux … but decided to go and check out the smaller lake next to it, called Lac Brenet.
The glaring different between these two neighbouring lakes is hard to miss … not only in terms of size but also in terms of popularity!
However … since this is just a teaser entry of what we did yesterday … so I will not say too much lah! hehehe … 🙂 If you want to know more … and see more pictures of this frozen lake, then …. you will just have to wait a while longer … because … I still have to finish that last entry on the frozen lakeside of Geneva!
Since we took too many photos of Geneva frozen lakeside between the two us … so I really have my work cut out for me, cutting down and selecting the photos that I want to share!
Anyway, here are just a sampling of the many shots that I took on Sunday at the frozen lakes ...
An old (probably early 20th century) map showing Vallée de Joux region … and the two lakes that I had visited and walked on over the weekend — Lac de Joux and Lac Brenet! This picture was taken from a signboard (put up by Société de developpement Les Charbonnières in 2009, illustrator unknown) that I came across during my walk at Lac Brenet.
The crowds on Lac de Joux.
Despite the weather being chillier than on Saturday … there was a lot more people yesterday (than on Saturday) who had come to enjoy this frozen lake before it starts to become too dangerous to be on it as the end of winter approaches!
In contrast, this was how it was at Lac Brenet … not a single soul on the lake!
Although I could see some footprints on the lake, they were closer to the shore rather than across the lake. I can only assume that it must be because it is not safe to do so.
Okay … I will share more about Lac Brenet in another entry.
