16th December 2011

Thick cloud developed quickly over the Cairngorms turning the day into a real pea souper. The snow pack is very cold and dry with a steep temperature gradient near the surface. Walking conditions in Lochain were generally good but we avoided the watery boulder section just North of the Lochans as any lurking ice wasn’t frozen enough to walk on.

Stanley dog is thrilled to assist whilst the snow profile is being dug.
