Col de Jaman

Well the last couple of weeks have been really busy. We signed up for a new apartment in Nyon, and have been trying to prepare our old apartment to show prospective tenants, and during this both of our jobs have kept us incredibly busy. Despite this we've determinedly managed to enjoy ourselves on the weekends.

Two weeks ago we went up to the Col de Jaman, which is part of the Rochers de Nayes area above Montreux. "Col" means "saddle", and the Col de Jaman is in the saddle between the Dent de Jaman and Cape au Moine. The benefit of Col de Jaman is you drive all the way up there, and then it is a short walk to a train stop to take you higher up the mountain, from where you can walk back to your car without killing yourself in the process (the drive back down is another matter).

The weather was excellent so it was a perfect time to be up in the mountains, and you could see for miles around. We had lunch at the Jaman train stop - suitably solid Swiss food to sustain our modest hiking - and explored the area.

Really there's not much more to say about the day other than we had a fantastic time out and about in the Swiss countryside! Click through any of the photos to see more of our adventures.
