Chief Ranger Marvin Dawes took these eerily striking photographs of Custer Battlefield on the morning of April 8, 2008. We witness monuments and memorials struggling to be seen through the fine mist. Thank you Marvin for taking the time to shoot these stunning photos and sharing them for all to enjoy. Scroll down for photos of late snowfall on April 21, 2008.
