    I had driven on the road to Malham Tarn many times before in winter, and older people have told me the road would block with snow in winters of old.

    But i was amazed to see the road completely blocked with a seemingly endless drift.

    These Highland mooos seemed to be at home in the snow.

    I will have to try to get to the tarn later in the week, second thoughts looking at the forcast maybe next week.

    Enjoy

    lovely shots of a lovely area

    does make you wonder why roads are made between hedges or walls, perhaps a new idea wou;pld be to elevate them above the surrounding area and then most snow would blow off them!

    My love of snowdrifts cost me lumber 3 and 4!

    If you leap into a drift make sure it's more than waist deep otherwise your upper body carries on whilst your legs/hips are held in a vice like grip.

    Result.....not good!
