Staunton's Gypsy Hill Park in the snow

There is still plenty of snow on the ground in the central Shenandoah Valley.

Snow-covered pathway leads over the creek to the duck pond.

When the hot days of summer roll around, we'll remember the pool as it looked while surrounded by snow.

Entrance to Gypsy Hill Park.

Baseball field is quiet in winter as it waits for the crack of a bat to signal the return of summer.
The hills of the park are still white.

The duck pond is popular even in winter's cold months.

Island of ducks ...

... with its duck houses for Staunton's feathered friends.

Next time we picnic at these tables, this scene will come to mind.

This volleyball court is a beehive of activity with local home school grads during the summer as they gather to play and picnic in the heat. Friday it was deserted.
