|Early morning view from Milldale|
Sunday, February 19, 2012
From Milldale along the valley to the main car park at the Ilam end, and back. With kids etc. Mainly Dan and Rose. 6 miles. There was snow/hail on the ground early on, which melted as the day went on. Cold wind in the shade, pleasant in the sun.
The day before this, we saw a dipper, in classic surroundings on the rocks beside the water, and earlier a heron, close to the bridge and very confident that we couldn't approach too closely. Guess what? No camera on that occasion!
