This, That, and The Other

Just a quick entry as life is acceptably busy this week, after a hectic weekend, with Susan over from Connecticut and trying to make the best of our Autumn weather.  More detailed entries will perhaps follow in due course.

This (below) is an image from Saturday afternoon, on the descent to Ingleton from Gragareth, after my six companions for the day had elected to turn back towards our starting point in Dent.

That (above) is Sunday morning’s view south, over fields of the Yorkshire Dales, from near Thwaite Lane – by Clapham, where a group of 24 of us fumbled our way across the moorland, eventually emerging from the road to Ingleborough Cave in rather showery  weather.

Most of the 24 strong group

The Other recent activity was today’s ascent of The Matterhorn of the Peak – Shutlingsloe, with Susan, who posed on the misty summit with her posh new gaiters before the flask came out.

Next: A visit to a café in Wales?

Shocking weather on the day of your Dent-Ingleton walk. Coming down in lumps, it was, I'm not surprised at the bale-out, although once you're wet, you can;t get any wetter, innit, so you might as well splosh on... We got wet too by the way! (but only from the knees down)
Pete's Eats is it?

It was fairly dry after 1pm! The others just wimped out. You would have lasted the distance!

Good guess, BTW, but you should know me better than that!
