Rocky Snow

Early evening at Rocky Hill.
I've been thinking. Yes, I do that from time to time. Come February 1st, the theme for that day is something along this: If you left your city and never could return, what would you miss the most? I'm undecided at the moment, but I do know it'll be something in the natural world. The city is just chock full of pieces of mother nature's handiwork. For example, my photograph today is of the backside of Rocky Hill in snow. On the other side are some sheer cliffs that drop off precipitously. Unless you live nearby, most people probably have no idea that wonder spots like this one lurk close around us.
Search and ye shall be rewarded.

  1. That's a nice pile of rock upon which to climb (when it's warm and there is no snow!). I'd prefer, however, looking upon a Florida beach. :)

  4. I wouldn't mind having a go at descending the other side- with climbing ropes, of course!

  5. I get your point, but I think I am with Lowell in this case...

  6. I'm finding this theme day the hardest one ever. Could do a whole week on things we would miss in our cities!

  7. Each of us has a secret part of the local world in the heart . Yours are rocks , mine is sea.

  8. What would I miss most? Traffic.

  9. One of the best parts of living anywhere for a while is discovering great spots that take a while to discover.

  10. It is not a rock I've ever seen...is it on the outskirts of Portland? I did leave my city & there are things I miss...miss just walking around downtown & the architecture & the cafés...and the experiences I had while living there...

  11. There is also a Rocky Hill here a couple miles from where I live. It looks different from yours (of course, there's not much about Texas that looks anything like Maine!). One of our dirt county roads is built through our Rocky Hill and every time I drive from the top town I'm reminded of a roller coaster ride!

  12. That is a very rugged landscape.

  13. I hope you'll show us the other side too!

  14. Nature never ceases to amaze me with its beauty - from sunny beaches to snowy rocks there's such a wide variety of things to see if you go out and look...

  15. Beautiful! I'm having a hard time with the February theme too. There are just so many things I would miss.

  16. What's the phrase, the rock-bound coast of Maine? You have better opportunities for this than some of us.
