Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!

Then little flashes of white falling from high in the trees caught my eye.  It was snowing!  It had been so long since I’d been this far north—I hadn’t seen snow for a couple years, at least.  

And it was so pretty!  It looked so surreal and beautiful falling through the branches.  I found myself wandering through the trees with my head tilted up and my eyes on the falling flakes.  It was mesmerizing to see the little clusters of white swirling about.  

Even better, it was settling on the ground, filling in between the blades of scrub grass and beginning to cover the low brush.  Everything was becoming fresh and new…and so was my attitude.  

I decided to press on.  Experience told me the snow might help me complete my mission faster.  At worst, I knew I could find a sheltered area to make a fire and spend the night in the valley.
