Here's a photo from my trip out to the Tech Trails a few weekends ago. Yes, that was an amazing trip -- in particular, I snowshoed on the School Forest loops, which go through the Houghton High School's school forest.
Along the way, I found this amazing view. There is nothing quite so striking as the trunk of a birch rising up against a clear blue winter sky. Birches are tricky: they look like nothing special for most of the year, but in the middle of winter they really show how beautiful they are. Their bark is surprisingly colorful, and they really show themselves well when there are no leaves to hide them. Enjoy!
