About 8” of fresh snow this morning. Mitch (maintenance) used the snowblower to clear snow while April (curator) used a good ol’ shovel to clear off all the porches of the historic buildings. Clearing snow is a good way to practice social distancing! ... See MoreSee Less
I remember one year when we arrived to volunteer on April 30th. We set up the RV in the campground and woke up the morning of May 1 to several inches of new, fresh snow. It was the very first time our Sheltie, Molly, had ever seen snow. She scampered out of the coach and buried her face in the fluffy white stuff. She just loved it! 🐶😘 There is something serene and very peaceful about a fresh snowfall.
Always beautiful no matter the weather conditions, although I'll pass on snow right now.Be nice to get up to the Hills in the future.
Such a beautiful place in every season!
