Today we did our first patrol of the year. We parked up at Peel Wyke (the Forestry Commission depot) to discover the section through Wythop Woods was closed so we moved the car to just beyond Routenbeck as we could do about 3/4 of the patrol & then cut back to the car.
The first section is a gentle climb with some patchy snow near the path
Dizzy turns to camouflage herself
Crag is definitely grinning, this is going to be a good walk in the snow
The path is pretty clear, Bassenthwaite Lake in the distance

Binsey has a dusting of snow on it

Ling Fell, we are on the south west side of Sale Fell & the snow has disappeared
As we get further around we are back in more of an alpine surrounding

Ok so who is enjoying this game most?
It was a lovely walk, with the weather set to be fine for the next few days hopefully we can get out again & play in more of the white stuff.
