Walking in a Winter Wonderland

January 12, 2009

The snow accumulation on the trees was amazing today. We did not get that much but there was virtually no wind so it all stayed on the branches and made for a spectacular winter wonderland. At 25 degrees and sunny, it was a great day for skiing...

...and sledding at the Town's free sledding hill.

Welcome to Beech Mountain...eastern America's highest town east of the Rocky Mountains at 5,506' in elevation.

Astonishing branches created by Mother Nature.

Awesome pics! Thanks for keeping us Texans in the loop while we're temporarily misplaced.
