Short Hill Mountain is located in northern Loudoun County Virginia. From the county seat, Leesburg, take Route 7 to Route 9 west to Route 287 north. Follow 7 miles to the historic town of Lovettsville, established in 1733, the mountain is on the left.
The previous night's ice storm on Short Hill mountain in northern Virginia left it's mark throughout the next day, covering all of the vegetation above a certain elevation. I spent a number of hours waiting for the clouds that lingered over the mountain to part and illuminate the ice. Finally at around 2 in the afternoon they retreated enough for the mid day sun to light up both the ice and the clouds.
