Description

Colored photo. Hill top view of a mountain town. Town appears to be surrounded by mountains on all sides as if in a bowl. The mountain to the left is red and dotted with pine trees and the mountain range in the middle and right is grey and black and dusted with snow. In the middle of the bowl next to the town is a large green hill with groupings of pine trees.
