Fresh snow coats the tree in the early morning at the Mines of Spain, Dubuque, IA.
I love hardwood oak and ash forests. In the northwoods, we don’t get to see these types of trees often. Over the holidays, one morning I hiked around at Mines of Spain and shot pictures in the cold, but beautiful morning light. I found an open forest on the side of a hill with the just-right trees for a picture.
