December Country

A northwestern fog settles over the rolling hills of December Country.

Rows of Noble Fir salute to surrender.

The calloused hands of a Christmas tree farmer wrangle and bail the holiday harvest.

The rumble of mud covered diesel trucks wind down the mountain roads into Silverton and brim with evergreen cheer.

Our Ropers may not often truck through snow,

but here in December Country is where Christmas grows.
