Searching for snow

Gail promised me we'd find some snow on our Sunday walk at Glen Tanar.

Things didn't look too promising at the Visitor Centre.


And those hills covered in white looked very far off.


So we trudged through an awful lot of this…


Before eventually coming across a small patch of this…


Then it was a long walk back through more of this...


And finally, after ten mostly muddy miles, I got dumped in this….

  3. Ya know what? As soon as we saw that third picture...the one of the puddley road...we thought, uh oh, a dunk in an icy stream is imminent!

    Glad you found a patch of snow.

  7. Ah...the indignity of it! We sometimes get hosed off on the driveway, which is cold enough. That must've been frigid

  12. Someday you will thank Gail, for helping you to become so hardy with the cold foot dunks. Just man up for it and soon you will do it without giving the chill another thought.

    Way to go, Gail!

    Cheers,
    Stella and Zkhat

  13. Hmmm. I don't think I could have survived a dunk like that even if it was in the name of snow searching. You're tough, my friend!
