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 day of snow

20th December 2009

I cannot say that I ever remember to have seen as much snow fall as I have seen today while finishing off those Christmas communications (all the best to you and yours, by the way). So many showers were coming in that it was next to constant. There were some thoughts about an outdoors outing but I reconsidered the sense of such a venture with what was falling outside. Visibility looked ropey atop the hills that lay outside my window so it might have been best to await clear day with snow remaining on the ground. Any plans for a stroll cannot assume the usual pace of travel though. Buses were travelling but tomorrow will tell its own story as to the transport system copes with everyone being out and about.
