More snow

It wasn't quite so cold here today, the thermometer managed to struggle just above zero. Just like yesterday, the two walks we had today look like they took place on different days.

LSH and I took Jana to Culbin Forest, a huge place in which people have been known to get lost (including a member of my family!) and then phone for rescue. Probably as a result of this, there are now leaflets with maps available at the car park plus all junctions are numbered and signposts dotted about. It's a bit like 'Walking For Dummies'.

The snow had started to fall just as we were nearing the forest and actually came down quite heavily. The route we took is a fairly new one and stops off at a look-out tower from which you can get a great view all around above the trees. Not today however. The snow clouds surrounded us and hid everything. I didn't get many photos either because the snowflakes were landing on my lens.

As we headed back home, just a few miles along the coast, we were surprised to see the snow disappearing fast until there was none to be seen. The big snowy cloud must have been sitting over Culbin Forest and nowhere else!

The papillons had their walk at the bottom end of the Burghead woods and you can see how different it was for them. Rosa would have loved playing in the white stuff again but, for now, she'll just have to make do with the bit of excitement she had over an icy puddle.

Hi Gennasus gang!

Thank you for visiting my blog and for the lovely comment!

My goodness, you have a HUGE family! Everyone looks so happy together - I love your photos.

And the walks look fantastic - I have never seen snow and would love to play in it...probably not much chance of it where I live! :-)

Slobbers,

You were lucky, we never seen above zero till we got to Rothes at 5.30ish. All the way down and up the A9 I had to get out a wash down the windscreen. At one stage of the training the temp went to -8.

Wow! You guys are amazing to walk in that snow! Looks like it's going to be a white Christmas.
