    Oh gosh, how beautiful! Where in the UK are you? (Skiddaw, I know but being geographically challenged, where is that please)?

    Oh Ann, that takes me back! Beautiful shot!!

    Tink, Skiddaw is a mountain in the North West of England, the Lake District, where I lived before I moved to where I am now

    Oh gee. That's not good.

    I remember when we were in Ireland we were listening to an Irishwoman talk about the mountains off in the distance. A Canadian (from the Rockies area, but it could have easily been an American) poo-pooed the mountains, calling them hills. The Irishwoman was polite but made it clear that the mountains were particularly rugged and if you ventured forth not knowing the lay of the land you could run into serious trouble. There had been some deaths of hikers who didn't know the mountains.

    All that to say, those who know the mountain best should be listened to!

    What a beautiful clear blue sky. And the snow makes it even lovelier.
