Fast blast back to Buckden

I should perhaps have titled this a fast blast down Buckden Pike, though I did stay in the saddle for a respectable distance on the way up...
...or even a quick blast on Buckden - the wind fierce once high and the snow shower that streaked through providing something of an icy blast to focus the mind ahead of the descent.
It left the higher slopes white once again - winter it seems, is far from finished.
Looking down - I had sheltered behind a wall as the snow passed and left the snow covered summit for another day, the last climb to the top being largely unrideable in either direction in any case.
Wild skies as the night closes in...
...but time still for a fast blast back to Buckden before the light failed.
