Trekking in Mountainous and Subarctic Regions

A gloomy early winter day on the High Fens

Leave a comment

The second week of November brings some unexpected wintry weather to the high plateaus in the east of Belgium, with snow and ice above 600 m. I make a strenuous 29.3 km hike over slippery frozen duckboards, sluggish snow and muddy trails. The day is pretty gloomy, with only a tiny bit of sun towards the evening. Rather typical for the time of year.
