VARIOUS STUFF - SNOW ON KINDER SCOUT 25 FEB & 4 MARCH 2006
BACK TO WEATHER PHOTO INDEX


Heading up from Hayfield towards Kinder on 25 Feb 2005 there was a thin cover of snow in the fields from falls over the previous couple of days, though most of the snow had been blown to the edges in a strong east wind.


Higher up on the edges of Kinder though the snow was deep, this is looking down the side of Kinder Low End after I'd climbed up through knee deep powerdery snow

On Kinder Low with a crisp covering of snow in a constant gale force east wind which at times made walking, and even standing, almost impossible. Despite the sun the wind chill was bitter.

Looking to the trig point at Kinder low past deep snow drifts

Sun and deep frozen snow, much easier than trudging through the more usual sodden peat

Deep snow drifts fill the peat groughs.

The week after, 4 March, I went up Kinder again. This is the frozen downfall
