Trekking in Mountainous and Subarctic Regions

What a difference 500 m make !


Mid-March. On Saturday I mow the lawn for the first time this year under a blue sky and pleasant early-spring temperatures. On Sunday I take my youngest daughter on a 15.5 km hike circumventing the still entirely snowbound (20 to 30 cm in places) Fagne Wallonne.  The day starts bone-chillingly cold with strong winds blowing from the northeast and low clouds. However, around 10 am clouds quickly dissolve and brilliant sunshine installs itself across the High Fens.
