Photo of the Day: Snow Covered Spruce Trees at Rib Mountain State Park, Wausau, Wisconsin
Today's photo of the day is once again of—you guessed, it –Wisconsin! After my recent trip, I could not help marvel at the pristine quality of snow-covered terrain, especially the sweeping spruce trees. One such giant (almost Gulliver-like) spruce tree stood in our way as the group hiked on Rib Mountain State Park.
Several branches stood, imperturbable and laced with snow. But the spruce trees seemed to make fun of the bare trees because of their generous evergreen leaves. This is a slightly overexposed photo (the glare of the sun plus the snow makes for some truly white on white) but the essence of that moment is still very much alive.
