Dec. 21: Hello, Winter Solstice | The shortest number of hours of daylight in 2017 arrived Dec. 21.

For travelers and townies alike, who know the Blue Ridge Mountains well, the charm of the coldest season is subtle yet in some ways most memorable, where outlines of solid mountain ridges curve and merge with bold lines of towering trees with their swaying leafless branches; a beauty of a different kind, its own brand of contemporary art on a grand scale, magically etched wonders created by countless stark lines amidst infinite shades of gray, a bounty of visual amusement for winter lovers.
