There and back again....
Rumours of a dusting on the moors meant it was time to get up to High Willhays and leave some stud marks in it.
Since posting last I've had a re-ignited fling with Walshes, but fickle thing that I am it's all Salomon Speedcross 3 these days. Good grip and comfy. Sold to the baldy northerner.....
Starting from Meldon Reservoir where a lively westerly was pushing washes over the dam overflow I got my first look at the white stuff this year with a coating on Longstone Hill.
The pull up to Yes Tor was a soggy one as I missed my favourite line up under the snow cover (which by now was a crunchy couple of inches.)
After a quick blast to High Willhays against the wind I stopped just short to take this shot as the skies darkened in the west and everything came over all Mordor-like.
I'd just tucked in behind High Willhays to sign the snow and the world went white for a couple of minutes.
A crunchy plodge later I landed on Black Tor and sprinted back to the van to get a brew on.
