Burns in Spate…
12th March 2022
Heavy precipitation overnight has soaked the snowpack causing a rapid thaw at lower elevations. Consequently the burns are running white and high down the hillsides with the River Dee extending itself outside it’s banks in many places. The snow has become wet and very soft – extreme caution is required when crossing snow bridges over fast running burns. I changed my plans for the day knowing that a long and wet excursion would be required to safely negotiate a burn that blocked access to the mountains which I wanted to visit.
Slightly less precipitation tomorrow but the winds will be severe gale force at summit level, with the freezing level rising up to 1200 metres by the end of the afternoon…..
Definitely lacking photo opportunities today – but it might have been a bit too depressing anyway….
