 Temperatures dropped again overnight along with more snow showers. This morning there was a few more cm's on the Cairngorm Mountains. More snow fell over on the west coast hills by the looks of it. Karen and I had a wee afternoon wander up Windy Rige and onto Cairn Gorm summit. High windchill on the tops. The cloud broke up in the afternoon and some nice views. We escaped the crowds on Cairn Gorm and headed down toward Loch Avon. Lovely late afternoon light. It really felt like a winter day today. Frozen ground, rime ice, snow down to 700m and a cold wind. Brilliant! Looks like a bit milder tomorrow but snow showers forecast through out next week. Bring it on!
