The winters in the mountains come and go with each year and it is hard to tell if it will be a hard, or easy, cold spell. This year has not been as cold and hard as winters past but it has given photographers some different and very nice shots. This particular shot is of Sugar Loaf Mtn. in Watauga County and never gets old. The frosty caps show the snowline, or one snowline, and gives a picture of what it is like living in the “highlands” of the mountains in our county. Trek on!
