Another local walk. 12km

Well it snowed here on Saturday night which is a first for us this winter. It wasn’t much, maybe 2-3 inches. It looked wonderful and gave us the impetus to get up and get out before the melt happened.
The land is so warm we knew it wouldn’t be around for long.

It was quite slippery under the snow as the evening before saw temperatures fall to -3C so treading carefully was necessary.

A group of runners passed us as we made our way up to the watershed, moving quite gingerly. I think i would have worn spikes.

We had layered up expecting it to be a touch chilly but it was warm and windless. Around 0C. Once at the top of our local hill which is a massive 222 metres high the views were good. Walking through the woods is always a pleasure with the sunlight filtering through the trees and plenty of children made use of the slopes for sledging.

So here are a few photo’s of our walk.

Hi Alan. Glad you've got some of the white stuff. What a difference it makes to a day out at this time of year. You'll be prosecuted for cruelty to skeletons and ornamental dogs if you don't find them some shelter soon.

It certainly looks like winter!

It makes you feel good to be out in the snow.
I wish they were mine but alas not.

it's a good job you got out. All the snow has gone now around here.

Al said...

Looks like you got about the same amount as us here Alan. It makes a nice change and makes familiar walks a bit more interesting.

AlanR said...

It was nice while it lasted. All gone here too.

AlanR said...

Agreed. I can still see odd bits on the Pennines but it won’t last.
