Wanting to start the new year right, I headed out really early to hike up Mam Tor. I knew the weather forecast had a good outlook, but I was in for a treat when I got there. Even though I technically missed the sunrise, I was still treated to an abundance of golden light!
The first photo is of the road (Edale Road?) on the other side of Mam Tor and as it is winter it never gets hit by direct sunlight — which is such a shame. I think the light that morning would have made it look a bit more interesting.
One good thing about going up Mam Tor is that the path is paved with slabs of rock. You could end up leaving the hill with hardly any mud on your shoes — but who wants clean walking shoes/boots anyway?
