Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

A weekend of winter wanderings

7th December 2008

It has been a weekend when the winter sunshine did its magic and I was coaxed out and about. Yesterday saw me head to the Howgill Fells for what might be termed a short spot of recce (bus times meant that I was allowed only a few hours to get a taste of what’s there) while I spent this afternoon on more familiar territory in among Cheshire’s hills. Full trip reports should follow but it is sufficient to say that I found some snow on my travels.

Update 2008-12-08: What a difference a day makes! All that wondrous winter sunshine has been replaced by greyness and dampness with day losing its fight with night earlier. It all makes me even more glad that I was able to partake of the opportunities that the weekend weather had on offer while it lasted.
