STK-ID 9185

LS of clouds passing over sun, of thin clouds passing over moon. Shot of moon hanging low over tundra and trees. Shot of snow-covered tundra. Shot of open water, glow of midnight sun reflecting. Shots of candle-ice fallen and erect, melting in spring, of icicles hanging from ice floes in spring, of water dripping off icicles hanging from ice floes in springtime. Several shots of abandoned trappers cabin in north woods, cabin has fallen in and old sled, tools and household ustensils remain among ruins, CSs of three wooden crosses.
