The Whiter Side of the Dark Peak

After a very mild December, winter seems to have arrived with bells on this week, and the Dark Peak is suddenly looking very white. It’s rare to get onto Kinder Scout in the snow – if it’s bad on the tops, the access roads are usually impassable – but yesterday’s fall covered the hills and left the lower levels clear. Perfect weather for a walk if you’re brave (or stupid!) enough to venture up there…

    You live in an area that must leave you breathless on a daily basis! Looks like a grand walking place. Enjoy every chance you get to be out there, but be careful on that slippery stuff!

      It’s perfect for walking, Margaret – you can do the same route over and over and it will still look different thanks to the weather on that particular day, or the season. It was a bit slippery yesterday – my wife has a few new bruises from falling! – but well worth the frostbite šŸ™‚
