Caption in album: "Snow is inocent [sic] and has beauty but it acts also as a blanket or carpet. A carpet covers many things. Such as mines and obstacles. It also made roads impossible as roads on mountain sides have snow drifts, slides and snow blockades. We had to make detours. As snow melts there is water and water with dirt makes mud. Mud spells trouble. Travel is slowed and mud can hold a truck, unmanouverable [sic] roads. Floods, overflowing rivers, colds, sickness, extra weights, snow blindness, wrecks, accidents, and ice has its defaults."

Mar. 1945
