Walking through the snow

Jadyn Bussard, 11, walks beside Lee Tripp, who pulls a sled filled with various items, as Abigail Tripp, 8, fixes her hair as snow falls in Staunton on Friday, Jan. 22, 2016. Abi stayed with Jadyn and her family while Abi's parents, including photographer Mike Tripp, were at work. Returning the favor, Jadyn visited with the Tripps after they returned home for the day.
