It was a splendid morning out on the hill. Moral of the story - get out into the Yorkshire Dales EARLY!

  1. Hi Hope you are well?

    Last weekend some work colleagues and I took in Pen Y Gent, Whernside and Ingleborough and I was thoroughly impressed with Ingleborough. Not least because it marked the end of a very long day but also the ascent from The Hill Inn and the descent into Horton in ribblesdale is absolutely stunning (in the evening sunshine at least)!

    How are the Challenge preparations going?

  2. Hello there, TDA. I am jolly well afer a bit of fresh air 'up north'.

    I love the 'airy' quality of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Gent: They soar above the surrounding big, empty landscapes. In the evening, the slanting sunlight displays every rib and knucle in the structure of the land beneath.

    A great place.
