Exfoliating Walk – Lug : 9th Feb ! iPhone Behaviour!

Weather conditions in Wicklow on Sunday were described by one walker as being equivalent to an exfoliation : the equivalent saying in some parts of the country is that the wind would skin one alive! Tough walking conditions were no problem to leader , Michael , who led his band of troops unerringly to the summit of Lugnaquilla in poor visibility and sub zero temperatures.

Taking the photo below resulted in the iphone shutting down – thus the truncated route diagram! iPhone owners may be interested in the behaviour of their instrument in sub zero temperatures  :
