TUESDAY...RIVER RUNNING ON THE TROUTBECK TRAIL
Recent heavy rain combining with the snow still melting off the ridge did indeed make for much "river running" . The National Trust own the land but not much is done to ensure the water streams across the trail and through to the fields below. It tends to reach the path then flow down it. Naturally it ices up easily in the winter making for it very dangerous for walkers, bikers and runners.
I stopped after a very slow 3 miles of wading in the water to take these shots of the terrain ahead! At which point I decided enough was enough and turned for home. Hopefully when I do the run again it'll be a bit drier under foot but I'm not banking on it.
