Have added a wintery Moel Hebog in Wales section.

This day out was the IMHO the best type of weather for mountain walking.
Blue skies and crystal clear air for great viewing.

Excellent pictures and very intresting to me as I recently did sharp edge
for the first time and was in cloud most of the day so it's nice to see what
missed.

That day was so good I went mad and took 220 pictures. The clarity of the
views as you said was so good I wanted to capture as much as I could. Only
so much I could put on the site though :)

Lovely Photos. BTW, when I climbed Meol Hebog, I saw what must have been
the biggest fox in the world. I was less then 20 feet away from it when I
scared it and had a good view. Strangely, it was very near the summit in
broad daylight, not something I see often in foxes behaviour. Even my old
Bull terrier would have been trembling with fear.

Back in March 1982 (god, that makes me feel old!) two of us were walking
over Nethermost Pike to Helvellyn when we saw a fox, moving quite quickly
from west to east over the summit. It stopped at the edge and started to
pick a way down through the crags. 'That's odd', we thought, and carried on
to Helvellyn and lunch. On the way back, in the same place, we saw lots of
beagles who obviously had the scent but didn't have the fox's talent for
scrambling down rough ground.

One up to the fox! I've never seen one or the other so high up a hill
since.

Several years ago - probably more like 5 or 6 - I took a friend of
mine for his first ever wild camp. We went to Sprinkling Tarn, and as
we sat in the door of the tent looking out over the water a beautiful
fox crept up and begged for something to eat. My friend - a big,
burly, rugby playing bloke - was frightened half to death, and has
never camped since! :)

I wonder if that's the same infamous fox that steals rucksacks up near
"sprinkling tarn" in the middle of the night?

Can't remember who, but also someone once wrote on uk.rec.walking about a
fox stealing his rucksack in the middle of he night and when he got out his
tent to investigate, the fox stood his ground and watched the owner retrieve
his rucksack!

Um... what? Empty or packed?? (Can't imagine a fox being strong
enough to carry a rucksack away!)
