Listening to the GM’s Journal / DM’s Diary, you’ll often hear me out walking and muttering on about tabletop roleplaying games. My morning walk takes me around 4km of local streets and then up the highest hill in the area.
Occasionally, someone asks me about what the area looks like. This morning, with the March snowfall and enough dawn light to make it worthwhile, I snapped a couple of photos.
