Lloyd: Feeling a bit under the weather with a chesty cold.
Michael: making a determined effort to get up earlier
Together they managed to set out just after lunch in bright, bright sunshine, and headed for Otley Chevin. The winter sun circles so low that the road to the Chevin viewpoint was wholly in shadow but Lloyd pulled up where a little road led through to the sun over the Dales. You can see that road in the photo below.
There was some sunshine as we headed for the main Otley Chevin viewpoint. But it was might cold in the wind on that exposed slope. So we did not stay long.
We moved the car a bit - to the old quarry entrance about 200m further along the road. There we found that the paths were very muddy after the rains and frost of the last few days. So we had to go carefully.
