Wiltshire is a beautiful county indeed.

Vast expanses of rolling hills covered with lush green vegetations and dotted by beechtrees on top of the hills is a lovely sight to behold. The county is full of country parks for wonderful walks. One such area is Marlborough downs.

I took all these images on a day when it snowed a bit. The snow adds great contrast to the backdrops of beautiful landscapes speckled with grazing lazy-horses. Wilthshire has its own peculiar landmarks - the White-horse trails. These are painted white horses on top of the hill in nine different places. Marlborough downs is one of them. The rest are as below which I copied from one of the White-horse trail websites -

The ALTON BARNES HORSE

The BROAD TOWN HORSE

The CHERHILL HORSE

The DEVIZES HORSE i

HACKPEN, BROAD HINTON or WINTERBOURNE BASSETT HORSE

MARLBOROUGH (or PRESHUTE) HORSE,

The PEWSEY HORSE

The oldest Wiltshire horse is the WESTBURY (or BRATTON) HORSE,

Together they make upto 90 miles walk. Really a lovely country side walk to cherish. Weather is usually moderate in Wiltshire and so these walks can be enjoyed thoroughly indeed.
