Cold with good visibility.

18th January 2020

Cold and clear, great views again today. Winds were fairly strong again. There was some snow drifting around but it was very light, the snowpack remains very firm and icy in all locations.

 

Stags still around the forest at the moment.

 

The Stuic.

 

Mountain hare on the rocks.

 

Stuic Buttress. Little snow on wind exposed terrain offers potential food for the hares.

 

And they are quite happy to feed on steep ground, tracks half way up Stuic Buttress.

 

A walker, top right, about to reach the summit of The Stuic. The plateau cover is thin and icy, crampons are useful.

 

Great views again today.
