After the aborted visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park yesterday owing to “black ice” making driving conditions very dangerous, I decided to try once again this morning.
It was a beautiful clear blue sky, still cold (about 1c) but not a breath of wind, ideal walking conditions providing you were kitted out appropriately.
I decided to do one of the longer walks which is about 5 miles in length but the beauty of this walk is that it affords stunning views of the park and the surrounding countryside and it is even more impressive when there is snow on the ground.
Although only 5 miles in length the walk is “up hill and down dale” which makes it hard going, but this was compounded by snow and ice covering the ground making underfoot conditions a little treacherous at times.
As to be expected on a sunny day with still many people on holiday, the park was very busy with everyone from whole families enjoying the snow to serious walkers setting out fully kitted up.
I made regular stops to take photographs and some of these are below…………hope you enjoy the views as much as I did.
