Petrified trees  Vale of Clwyd

There were a few days this January it was just too cold to stay outside for long around these parts. The dense cold air was channelling down to the valley floor for days, creating a freezing fog that stopped the sun heating the ground. After three days though, the fog departed, leaving the landscape gripped in a deep freeze and covered in a thick hoarfrost.
