Quickly to The Mushroom Shelter before another pelting squall of hail. When it;s over the sun comes out and we step forth to see the fells gleaming under snow- the grand reveal.
A fast-paced drama of weather that thrills those who venture forth. A sensational day: visual, as you see, a loud and icy wind that tries to topple you, hail-bearing cloud gathering and sweeping the landscape, darkness and light.
Outcropping limestone rims the steepest crag on Scout Scar escarpment. From this vantage point, looking north, a deep dark sky. We live poised between darkness and light, like the sunlit farmhouse not quite engulfed in darkness, not yet.
