    the dip of the pasture?

    I'm having problems visualizing the dip of the pasture below the wood in this excerpt.


    "Yes. He draws pictures of things. He's down there now drawing the
    Bonner house." She pointed to a chimney just visible over the dip of the
    pasture below the wood.


    Right, she's is sitting high up a slope, below her is a wood, below the wood is a pasture, and she can see the chimney, but what about this dip in the pasture? Is the house located in the dip? Or is the pasture in a dip? Comments, please!

    'dip of the pasture' - it's a part of the pasture which is lower (level of the ground) than the rest of the pasture.

    I think the house is beyond the pasture, the chimney showing over the farther slope of the dip.
