Bog trotting on Barden Moor

Another dump of snow but with temperatures hovering above zero, it was soft wet going up from Embsay resevoir. Following the path beyond Crookrise I struck out across the open moor, a little bog trotting necessary to pick up better, firmer trails leading up and on towards Cracoe Memorial.
It's a familiar, undulating route and one which I have run more frequently than normal recently as the gales have blown through in rapid succession. But with colder, calmer weather forecast, it might just be worth getting dressed up and heading to the fells for something a little steeper soon enough.
