Winter Hill - 07 January

Foggy wet day and something of a contrast with two days ago. I did wonder if the top of the hill might be above the clouds but even the top of the mast wasn't above the clouds so there wasn't much to be seen anywhere.

Winter Hill - 05 January

A glorious sunny day and an opportunity for a long run over Winter Hill with the distraction of the Air Ambulance on Rivington Pike. Not an exercise as I thought originally but attending to a 70 year old walker who collapsed on the summit. The casualty was taken to hospital in one of the Mountain Rescue vehicles which must be why the Air Ambulance crew were so laid back.
