Brecksville Reservation, OH - woods in snow

Most of Ohio is at least slightly rolling, going to moderately hilly mainly to the South side of the State. Here in the North-East, this is a typical scene - rolling countryside of small streams in little valleys, covered with deciduous woodland. This is in early February of 2003. Compared to surrounding days, this was a moment of mildness, with temperatures rising to near freezing/thawing temperature and winter sunshine - bright but not warm.
