eARTh beneath your feet #2 and #3



The higher parts of the moors, exposed to wind, got a bit of a frost lately. Apart from producing these amazing art, the frost facilitates moving around the moors, which are incredibly soggy at this time of year. I also managed to get quite close to a female Red Grouse but that's for another post.
While driving to the Peak yesterday I was brutally reminded how slippery the road can be - the black ice - I saw a car in the ditch at the sharp turn on top of the hill as you approach the national park. I had no tow-rope but offered a lift. The lady answered that her Mum who lives in Hathersage is coming to give her a tow. As soon as I got back I bought a tow-rope. You never know when you will need help.
