To Mountain Top



The road from the bottom of the mountain to the top is only ten miles. But it takes a full hour of meandering through the woods to traverse those ten miles and get to cabin's door even under best conditions. Last week-end, as we neared the half-way mark between mountain base and mountain top, the roads became wetter, muddier, and finally white with snow. It was the perfect type of snow; you know, the type that clings to tree branches and makes them bow gracefully as they stand in stately rows. And everything's so quiet in the woods after a snowfall. Such tranquil beauty and such novelty after the hot, hot days of summer not all that many weeks before.

  8. I always enjoy a good snowfall--looks beautiful!
    We've had huge snowstorms by the 31st in past years, but, very different this year--being warm and dry. Many of my annuals are still blooming!
