Christmas Day.... NO WAY! (c) 2009

0745 - 0845hr
W F1, -4degC, 100m, fog stratus, QNH 993 rising

A morning of much potential in the foothills to the east of the Pennines with clear open skies.... but up here... deep fog stratus and still impossible to get into this watchpoint site... NO WAY!... thats for my car anyway! Here above are the gates and "white hell" beyond! An exploration of foot was abortive so went east for a "walking watch"

Merry Christmas
