Winter Hill – 08 December

Winter Hill today and almost early enough to catch the very best of the morning sunshine. Having run from home and wandered through Blackrod and Horwich before climbing out of the low lying haze I was fortunate to catch the last of the sunshine before the clouds started building. Like last weekend, the snow had a crust but not one capable of carrying any weight and even on the mast road the snow was tedious rather than fun and the ice was always threatening.
