Helm Cragg, Loughrigg etc. I think the very best thing about the winter is the snow. No, it's the inversions. No, it's the snow. Oh I don't know! How about "it's the snowy inversions"? I've learned a lot about walking in snow this year, I've also learned a lot about sliding in snow and falling in snow - mostly I've learned that the last 2 can be quite painful and should be avoided if at all possible.
So after all that I have to choose my favourite time of year for the fells. Hmmm, I'm inclined to say early spring when the crocuses & snowdrops are out everywhere and the evenings are getting everso slightly longer, but that's probably because it's early spring right now. Ask me again in a few months and I'm sure I'll have changed my mind. Sorry about that but don't blame me, blame the fells.
