Dartmoor: East Hill Views – New Years Day 2021

Up late, time to clear the head and wander up to East Hill from home, adhering to COVID Tier 3 guidelines to stay local. This is always a fine walk with views south to the high moor and north over Okehampton and further to Exmoor, but made particularly special after a dusting of snow.
