Topsy Turvy and Happy 2017
Happy New Year, thanks to all those that have shared the hills with me in 2016 and here's looking forward to 2017. It's been a strange December, with a few colder spells, but none that really lasted, "blink and it's gone". Now to start the New Year an Arctic blast has brought something more seasonal, and the Cairngorms are already starting to look much better. There is still relatively little snow, and it is of course unconsolidated, but it's an improvement. There is a suggestion of colder weather further into January too, so hopefully this is the start of the "proper" winter.
