A Walk up to Rippon Tor in the Snow

Rippon Tor and Nutcrackers Tor

It had not been our intention to go out for a walk in the snow, but as we ascended Rippon Tor I spied a huge snow cloud coming in from the Princetown direction. We then sought shelter!

It got cold all of a sudden but the views which opened up were more compensation than I could've ever asked for!

Same as before

A simple descent back to Hemsworthy Gate was all that was required before getting back to a cosy, warm home.
