Everything's Gone Green
well, sort of fluro-yellow/snot green, anyway.......
Time to break in a new pair of Swoops with a round-about Cranmere Pool run. Parking at Row Tor, Spook the wonder dog led the way up the ring road to OP15, on to Ockerton Court then the gloriously clarty bogfest to the Pool which had been specially prepared by last night's rain. Signing the visitors' book I couldn't help but notice a bunch of ramblers had rocked up on the 2nd of Jan and laid claim to be the first of the year. The cheek of it.
Back through the grade 1 tussockfest (donning beanie and gloves due to a snipey breeze) we hit the ring road again and turned off down Sammy Arnold's Lane to the junction with the Dinger Tor track. From here we made a bee-line to High-ish Willhays and opened it up a bit on the track to Yes Tor before the swoopy roller-coaster down to West Mil Tor, Row Tor and back to the car.
