Dunham trees

A local winter stroll around Devisdale Common and Dunham Massey in sub-zero temperatures and a thin covering of snow.

The trees had retained a pleasing amount of colour into early winter and the local views were enhanced by the snow, here are a few pictures.

Another local walk earlier in the week in similar frigid temperatures had been unpleasantly revealing: following the DVT and pulmonary problem that hospitalized me a few years back, the consultant recommended not to do strenuous activity in winter conditions as we have in the past: deep breathing very cold air is asking for trouble and it really hit me on that walk. I fear our hard winter backpacking will now be consigned to memories.
