Wading through Snow!

22nd December 2016

It was a cold windy day with frequent snow showers. The snow has accumulated in sheltered places but is soft and unconsolidated meaning that I was regularly up to my knees and occasionally sinking in to mid thigh.

Stormy weather for tomorrow but a brief warming followed by colder weather should help consolidate the snowpack.

Snow lying to low levels.

The mountain bikers didn’t get too far before abandoning their bikes and walking.

A caterpillar enjoying(?) the snow.

Coire na Chriochairein – poor visibility prevented pictures of higher up.
