It's a snowy pasture with a couple of cows in it.
Somebody left a boat in there too.

Modern day Noah's ark.
Foreground is clearly the port fo'ward toe rail.
To the right is the pilothouse.
It's hidden under a bit of camouflage vegetation, but clearly covered in manna.
The real give away is the animals starting to sneak in two by two...

I'm not sure the boat model but I'm guessing it has a plow anchor
