Alston Weekend Away
28th March 2009
Is it worth even setting out in this weather?
River East Allen
Lambs only just born
Derelict church at Spartylea
The weather clears...
...but there's still plenty of snow on the tops
Heather buried in wind-sculpted snow
Across the Icy Wastes
We spy a snowball target..
As Ed hits the target of Chris's shoulder
Glad we didn't choose this road to get to the walk start
Ed's having his Scotch Egg, even if everyone leaves him behind
Andrew leaves the shelter of the cairn
Jon leads the way up to Kilhope Law
The bleak Kilhope Law
674 cold meters up
Descent back to Allenheads
In the Allenheads Inn (antiques bar)
