VARIOUS STUFF - PHOTOS OF SNOWY WALK UP KINDER, 26 NOVEMBER 2005
BACK TO WEATHER PHOTO INDEX

     
The morning of 26 November 2005 saw the first snow of winter in the Peak District, albeit just a slight covering on the highest hills. So I had a walk up Kinder Scout, highest point of the Peaks for a look. This is the trig point on Harry Hut, 440 metres asl above Glossop with a light covering of snow.

Continuing onwards and upwards towards Kinder I soon found myself in low cloud cover, as seen here at Mill Hill with the stake clearly indicating the junction where my route meets the Pennine Way.

At the Kinder downfall, 600 metres up with the river was frozen over and it had started to snow quite heavily.
                  
Another view near the Downfall.

Happy at having encountered some snow I headed back the way I came, this view is looking back along the Pennine Way on the south west edge of Kinder.

Dropping down from Kinder at the top of William Clough, the low cloud was beginning to lift.

Looking down to Kinder reservoir, caught by a brief glimpse of sun between passing cloud.
