Snow on the distant fells, hurray! It's not a grand reveal on reaching Scout Scar escarpment. The ground is frozen hard and the sun moon-pale, shrouded in cloud. The air is laden with moisture, the fells veiled and indistinct. It's silent and still. During the morning a cold north wind clears the air, the sun breaks through fitfully and a roving spotlight shows farmhouses, trees and fragment of fell. Gleams of brilliance could be low cloud, could be snow in a swirl of sunlight and mist.
