After my last post, showing how much snow I encountered this time last year, I was out on a walk today. Along Snake path to Ashop Head up to Kinder Plateau, along the Northern edges to Fairbrook Naze and back to Snake Pass. The walk was 13km (8.5 miles). I had heavy rain, hail, sleet and blizzard conditions on the tops with plenty of snow. I was also testing some new gear, some purchased by myself and some supplied by companies. I was also trying out my new Iphone 4S – the photographs and video below were taken with its 8mp camera. I am looking to see if I can take just this phone instead of a camera.
Great conditions to test new gear. I will post up these in due course. There was water pouring down the hillsides in all directions, with paths covered with water and some of the stream crossings were a challenge.
Here is a flavour of today.
By time I got back to the car park, my car was covered in snow. I struggled out of the car park onto the A57, heading for Sheffield. At Ladybower reservior, I passed the “Road is Closed sign” just out in the nick time!
