There was rain and snowfall in the lower half of our country yesterday, but in the north -where we live- it stayed completely dry. This morning we joined the 'Oudjaarswandeling' (lit. 'Old year's hike), a 10 km (6.4 miles) hike held each year on the last Sunday of December, and starting in the village of Exloo. Halfway we passed the skating rink in the woods, that showed just a tiny layer of ice after the frost from last night.
The second half of the walk continued along a beautiful area with heather, called 'Molenveld'. In the distance is the Exloo sheep herd.
