Even if the snow has now disappeared on the trails, a thin layer has remained in the forest. The fog creates a mysterious atmosphere. The loggers are no longer allowed to use machines to drag tree trunks, because the soil is no longer frozen and this would cause damage to the soft ground. They can still fell trees. But clearing (bringing the trunks from the forest to the wood) will happen later. The gorse is not affected by the cold and starts to bloom.
