Snow flurries on the Fells

Monday 22nd Nov 2010
                 The weather yesterday was much colder with a keen NE wind so it was a case of keep moving or your cold. The walk on the Bowland Fells up Parlick Hill then along the ridge to Fair Snape Fell (the height about 1700 ft) was about 6 miles .In the distant North Wales was just visible and through the binoculars the Isle of Anglesey could just be seen very faintly.Throughout the walk we had our first snow showers of the winter, not a lot to see naturewise just a few Red Grouse but a least we got out.

            Prepairing for lunch, the dry stone wall giving good shelter from the keen NE wind

                            Striding out towards the summit
