There certainly isn't any of that snow left, and hasn't been for a couple of days. Our high temperatures are pushing sixty degrees. I'm not at all sorry to see the snow gone.

This is the "bench" road down into the woods from our house. It's part of the loop we walk most every day in the winter. A naturally occurring shelf above the creek was widened (a little) and cleared (a little) and turned into a road -- if you've got four-wheel-drive. They say that back when horses and wagons were the only means of transportation -- besides walking, of course -- this was the only road off Star Mountain and down into Bear Creek Valley. Maybe so.
