On this night hike to the river, we started following the road from which car track after track turned off one by one until, by the time we reached the level crossing, our feet are treading in pristine snow. The sky overhead is clear and an almost full moon illuminates this cold January night. Taking the river path upstream, we see the curve ahead but cannot make out the lock in the gloom. The Cambridge glow lifts out the skeletal trees in the distance. Time to go and follow our solitary trail back, feet crunching in the crisp white blanket.
