[edit] Expedition

Sourcerer: A 45 km Sunday afternoon drive under leaden skies with drizzle threatening to turn to snow led to a pretty valley with a small stream (the Dentonwash) running beside the road. The Google Earth images below look summery but in real life the trees were skeletal black dripping silhouettes. A few snow drops were coming into flower promising better weather soon. Parts of the UK further west had snow today but nothing like the blanketing of north east America.

MagicIan was daft enough to go for a 48km bike ride to the hashpoint in the weather described above! It was cold and dreary so not ideal for taking lots of photos, but still a pleasant ride. The actual hashpoint was just over the hedge, but he got within a couple of meters.
