Following breathless reports of apocalyptic levels of snowfall I thought I'd better get out and see what all the fuss was about. Driving over to Meldon there was the odd glimpse of a dusting on the tops although the fuzzy visibility made it hard to tell.
Parking up we set off up the side of Longstone Hill and on up towards Yes Tor. The patchy snow made a bit more of an effort above the death zone (500m on Dartmoor) and had gathered itself into half-decent drifts on Yes Tor and High Willhays.
Not another soul up here as we left paw and Walsh tracks snaking down towards Black Tor and powered though the slush and mud back to the car.
