Snow Road Ahead
A sudden storm had carpeted the countryside with snow by late afternoon.
There being little likelihood of traffic at that time we wrapped up warm and walked into the village a mile and a half away.
Although there had been the odd 4WD passing us, we guessed that fewer drivers would risk the top road on the way back.
For once we were right, and were rewarded with this near pristine walk home.
The slopes, looking as tempting as a piste to ski down, made the return to a cosy fire and an evening meal that much more magical.
Sadly, something never quite duplicated since.
