We've had a round trip to Ambleside in Cumbria today; around 350 miles to deliver Mark back to University. Tomorrow, he's off to the Cairngorms in Scotland for a short course in Winter Skills; white-over navigation, snow hole survival, ice climbing and the like. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!
When he left to come home, there was quite a lot of snow on the Lakeland fells, sufficient for some Winter walking and to have had a morning sledging, but the mild Christmas has reduced the layer to a dusting.
Just enough to leave his view with a Wintery touch.
