Snowy Sunset Geocaching 

Honey was in Edinburgh on Saturday morning and phoned me on her way home in the afternoon. It was about 90 minutes before sunset and she asked if I wanted to take a quick sunset walk around Gartmorn Dam in Clackmannanshire.

I quickly calculated the cons (we’d not have very long;  I’d have to change out of my pajamas) and the pros (we’d be in the woods!) and said yes.

We did some walking, deep breathing, geocaching, and talking.

We got there around 3:30pm and because it was a clear day, we could still see in the twilight when we got back to the car at 4:45pm. I wouldn’t have thought to chance a walk so late on a winter’s day (even though I used to lead weekly night hikes in woods I knew well) and I’m so glad Honey did.
