Featured in the One Tree at a Time group, December 2010.

Sledding with my son the other day, I spied this tree atop a hill (on the Zugerberg, Zug, Switzerland) standing valiantly against the bitter cold of a Swiss winter.

The pure white snow against the brilliant blue sky was breathtaking for this expat Aussie.
