Pow Burn overflowing
When out on my once-a-day-exercise (how many times can I say, ‘Déja vu’?) yesterday, I attempted to walk along the course of the Pow Burn and on to Hedgeley Lakes. However, the rapid melting of the ice and snow led to the Pow Burn overflowing its banks and blocking off the path.
As I wasn’t wearing wellies, I didn’t fancy trying to hike through the overflow – which was now running over the path and into the opposite field. In parts, it was around 25cm deep and the ground was, of course, extremely boggy.
Still, I managed to get some nice photos before turning back the way I came and cutting short my intended walk.
