As promised i am writing about the hikes that i have done so far this year (5 at the moment)
I have got some photos at last, although none for hike number three as they are trapped on my camera phone! If you want to see previous ones just click on hikes in the categories section found on the side bar.
Hike number Three was in Wales in a place called Llyn Geirionydd & Llyn Bychan from Llyn Crafnant. To see the walk description click here
This was a lovely walk but we got a bit lost due to bad map directions!(yes i am blaming the map not my navigational skills!). So that added about a mile onto overall route, it was worth it though.
Hike number Four was in the Yorkshire Dales, where we tackled one of the Three Peaks,Ingleborough .
Started the walk with a 2 mile stroll past the entrance of the ingleborough cave system. This is amazing place and i will be going back some time this year! If you like caves
This is the start of the serious hiking, just a wee scramble over wet slippery rocks and away we go!
Now we trudge over moorland for awhile, it didn't look like much, but it hurt like hell!
If you look at this picture where i had to rest, we started way down the bottom on the left and we haven't even started the climb yet. Its food time now, so break out the butties, cant eat too much though as its tough climbing next. The trudge continues for another half mile or so before we hit the climb!
It wasn't as bad as the miles of trudge, just had to do short sharp bursts of energy, its worth it when you turn round and see this!
At the summit at last, here is a photo of Aly who is pointing at the summit marker (my mate who kindly lets me use these photos! i do take some of them honest!) But will be getting my own camera soon!
Ok its time to descend this peak lets have a quick look where we are going.
Oh it doesn't look too bad! lets get a bit nearer.
Ah how beautiful, this will be a lovely stroll down.
Not quite! it was bloody scary coming down i am glad we didn't come up this way!
Once you reached the very bottom and looked back, it doesn't look like that much hard work does it!
Just a wee scramble down them rocks and we are on the way back to the car (via the pub!)
Here's a goodbye off Aly!
I hope you enjoyed this! more to come soon!
