Haibun: First Snow

Cairngorms National Park

The Cairngorms used to be called Am Monadh Ruadh or Russet Coloured Mountain Range. We love walking in the National Park out of season. The ancient pine are self-seeding and some of the trees are a thousand years old. The streams running from the hills are crystal clear. The water seems as pure today, as it has always been.

Wishing you all a magical Tuesday,
