Peak Puddle Jumper

15th Jan 2014

     Single track through the heather out in the Peak district national park, Derbyshire

Its been a pretty dull and wet start to the year here in the UK. I've been getting out whenever the weather has been conducive, but, I'm afraid to say, that hasn't been that often. But on the few days it hasn't been raining I've managed to go for a damp climb or a wet run! Yes, something the peak has in abundance this time of year is water and mud, so being able to "puddle jump" is a bit of an aquired necessity. It was a cold and frosty morning when we started, but by the time we got back to the car we were a couple of degrees above freezing. A good day.
