After a day of oversized portions and undersized exercise yesterday, I woke up this morning, feeling like I wanted to go on a burst of adventure. I scoured the maps and found a suitable looking geocache as a target, just above Blubberhouses.
I arrived at the place I’d picked to park just before sunrise – around 08:00. It was minus 2 but I was togged up in suitable gear. A very odd phenomenon occurred. I was right on the ceiling of a bank of mist – I’d walked up thorough it and at the summit, I had blue sky above me and I could see the tops of the surrounding hills – bit the weirdest thing – I had a sort of shadow halo thing following me. I tried to capture it on video but it doesn’t really do it justice…
‘scuse the clicking noise – that was me trying to fiddle with the zoom whilst filming..
The walk was beautiful – the oddest sun rise I’ve experienced in ages. We (Eslie dog and I) found the geocache and headed back home. Here’s a few snaps..
