I've posted a view from this abandoned ski slope behind the cabin several times, though I usually wait until fall or perhaps for a pretty sunrise. I don't think I've ever posted the view in winter before, so it's about time. Roundtop mows this slope about once a year--just enough to keep the forest from taking it back. I make use of it to hasten my trip down into the forested valley below. I love the forest, though there's no denying that trekking through one where there's no trail takes longer.
This view will likely change in a few hours when yet another ice storm covers the area. Even without this impending storm, this season's winter could savely be called the year of the ice storm. Oh, I've had plenty of ice storms in past years, but I haven't had one a week for week after week. It's gotten old, believe me.
So, today seemed a good time to post a non-ice storm photo. It's likely the last time for at least several days that I will be able to do that.
