After our short break in the Cairngorms, I returned to work with a renewed appreciation of just how fantastic our area is. It’s a great area to go walking with Jan and Daisy. Daisy just loves running around and we see her just naturally ‘quartering’ or zig-zagging and returning to us.
We now turn our attention to a programme of work for the winter. Our fell rangers come down from the high fells and work on the lower slopes and in the valleys during the winter weather so I’ve been out with them to show them some footpath work that needs to be done around Castle Crag. They are a great bunch of guys who will be well able to use their experience to decide how best to do the repairs.
We’ve also been doing some more work on the play trail with the volunteers. We’ll have to think of some kind of an opening ceremony for that.
Roy’s back. It’s great. Me, Roy and Jan have been running around on the mountains. Well, I’ve been running.
