Just crossing the road behind the car park and looking up to the start of Rushup Edge.
Looking ahead along the footpath to Lords Seat.
Grassy tufts could be seen everywhere poking out from the winter cover.
A panoramic view looking over the Vale of Edale with Kinder Scout in the distance (click on the image for a larger version)
In a little more detail looking down to the Vale of Edale
A solo walker also enjoying a very sunny day in the hills.
Oak leaves on a National Trust sign with some snow and ice sticking to the post.
The summit of Brown Knoll (569m) with Kinder Scout ahead. Although the sun was out there was still a bitterly cold wind.
Descending down to Jacob's Ladder. The path on the right was just sheet ice. My route stuck to the grassy slope on the left to ensure that I stayed on my feet.
At the top of Jacob's Ladder and just dropping below the snow level.
Looking up Jacob's Ladder, Kinder Scout in the distance.
Heading back across the fields and up to the road near Mam Tor, and the National trust car park.
Thanks for visiting.
