Having to work throughout Christmas and being on call has some advantages I guess – there was no partying or drinking for me on New Year’s Eve which meant it was no problem getting up early to catch the first light of 2016 (before I went to work again!). Although not a spectacular sunrise by any stretch of the imagination it was nice to be the first one up there in 2016 and it was certainly a lot colder than it has been recently – almost like winter it was! Happy New Year to all, here’s to a great fell walking 2016…
