My head in the clouds

Malham to Horton- in -Ribblesdale 14.5 miles (23.5k)

I was going to have a rest from blogging tonight but I have had such a great day.

We were in mist or cloud all day.

I think I fancy doing some watercolour painting so these scenes really appeal to me.

These twin cairns are called The Two Stone men.

The guide book says to look around.

For the first time in days there are no towers or obelisks on the horizon.

Visibility was so poor we could see very little until we descended a bit.

This is the view of Pen-y-Ghent as we approached.

At 2283ft/696m it was going to be a tough climb.


The trig point at the summit, not much view.

And then the slow descent.

Lovely flash bedroom awaiting us tonight.
