Last Sunday I took my camera along when I ran in Hopkins Forest (explanation for Jeff Dwyer here) and took this picture of my favorite place on the trail:

This is about half a mile past the top of the upper loop going counter-clockwise. For the whole rest of the 5-mile forest loop, there are tall, mainly deciduous trees on both sides of the trail, but at this one particular spot, there are these beautiful little trees, often (as here) covered in snow. To see this spot, you have to be quite a dedicated runner/hiker/skier, since it is about four miles, and quite a lot of vertical elevation, from the college.
