Biography

Janette Norton has lived in France, near Geneva, for over 30 years. Her love of mountain walking dates from the time she was a guide in her twenties; the proximity of the Alps and Jura to her home has inspired her to continue her passion. Now her family has grown up, she has branched out to explore other areas of France.
