Scafell Pike - Ice Man Walker Mystery

I know its not a very seasonal piece.

But based on the HUGE numbers of walkers (with enormously differing ideas of suitable clothing) that I encountered today in the New Forest, probably worth a mention as a reminder that it doesn't always go as easily as it seems on the TV. Even with the best preparation and foresight.

"The body of a hiker still wearing his cloth cap and carrying a rucksack and a guide book of the area by Alfred Wainwright has been discovered entombed in two inches of ice near England's highest mountain" -
Newspaper report here with eye witness account from the farmer who found the body here.

Now back to finishing off the 2007 round-up I started before the holiday season.
