As the snow was still deep on the rough tracks around Kirkby Stephen, I decided to take a short skiing trip out on my newly acquired cross country skis. Unfortunately I had to borrow an old pair of poles and boots…..
But after 20 minutes the sole fell off one of the boots.
There was nothing to do but take off my skis and walk back to the car 🙁
But I still got out and enjoyed the fells.
The road up to the fell did eventually get ploughed and thank goodness it did.
