La Vue-des-Alpes is a stopover on the scenic road to La Chaux de Fonds from Neuchâtel.  Located on the Jura at 4200 feet, it commands a panoramic view across to the Alps.  We discovered a toboggan track, also known as la luge d’été (summer luge) – basically, a plastic bucket seat with wheels that roll down the hill on a steel channel.  The only control is a stick that when pulled back slows the descent.  No head protection was provided/necessary.  Sue went first, with IT in the middle, and I follow at the back.  The operator was telling us by loudspeaker to slow down because it was drizzling and the track was wet.  Kids loved it but it was a bit tame for us.  Fun and a bit short though.
