Another Damp Day.

26th February 2017

It was another damp day in Glen Coe today. The freezing level was around the highest summits. It was snowing above about 800 metres, and above around 900 metres it was coming down faster than it was melting.

The view at about 860 metres today. There was a layer of about 10cm of soft wet snow lying on top of most things. 

Fresh snow on my rucsac at around 920 metres. The fresh snow that was falling was very wet, but above about 900 metres it seemed to be sticking.
