In an otherwise grey winter day, a little bit of color stands out.

As for the title, that refers to the snow-covered dirt road at right. Just over the hill in the distance, 
the road takes a sharp turn to the right. Suddenly the snow is much deeper 
as it is clear no vehicles had dared to venture further up the hill. 
So I carefully backed down into what appeared to be a flat pull out, 
only to have the rear of my SUV become stuck on an unseen hump along the shoulder. 

Hmmm . . . what now? 

Fortunately, only minutes later another adventuresome person came upon me 
and helped guide me in my vehicle further back past the hump. 
The idea was to have room to get up speed to send me up and over the hump. 
It worked!
