Photo Article: Snow on the High Taygetus behind the Greek Hovel

I shall try to drive up to the snow covered peaks of the high Taygetus at the weekend. For now I just gaze up at them from the Greek Hovel. While we enjoy bouts of heavy rain and intermittent sunshine in the foothills of the Taygetus the high peaks are covered in snow.

The first photo is from the Greek Hovel itself and the far peaks are a bit covered in cloud but you can just make out the snow.

The second two shots are taken from the back of Kambos village near the main Church ( we have three) and give a rather better view of what lies ahead on my weekend field trip.  I very rarely snows in Kambos itself. The only effect of that snow is that when it finally melts the dry river will stop being a stream as it is now but will be a gushing little river, if only for a few days.

Woodlarks walk – Training Update, a 19km stroll with my daughter, ice cream for Joshua

The sunshine was glorious and my teenage daughter was here at the Welsh Hovel to help drag her aged father around the track we have cut in the grass around three of our fields. Quickly I established some good news.
