The snow has virtually disappeared and the blue skies of last week have gone again. The warm front brought with it rain and general dreariness – not wonderful conditions for a walk, but at least we got some fresh air for our walk up to the central band of fells along the High Tove – Ullscarf ridge. These fells are renowned for their wetness and general bogginess at the best of times, so you can imagine what conditions were like today!
