Winter thought's & Fresh snow in the highlands.
It is only a dusting mind, but enough to encourage the psyche a little more....
Last week a small sprinkling fell on the Ben Nevis plateau, and more recently some deposits over on the Cairngorm plateau. Friday/Saturday brought the first snow to the Northern corries, which to most folk becomes the first Scottish winter climbing venue of the season.
The highlands are forecasted to receive some frosts in the Glen's, but with freezing levels generally above the summits, the axes shouldn't be wielded just yet.....
With thoughts turning towards the winter climbing season, both in the highlands and hopefully in the Lakes/Snowdonia again, the race continues to try and get my injured foot strong enough, and myself fit enough to have another fantastic season.
So the rehab continues, its a slow process......
Some photos from last season...
