Tuesday 6 September 2022 - The Dales High Way - Day 6 - Ribblehead to Sedbergh
A 9:30 start after more scrambled egg and smoked salmon than I could manage! There's a first for everything. Portion sizes at the Station Inn are not for the weak hearted.
After leaving the convivial atmosphere of the inn, we headed alongside the impressive viaduct. Two fighter jets roared across the sky just above us.
A short climb led to Blea Moor Sidings, where Cary inspected the property he has in mind for his parents' next move. Swallows, unaware of their impending eviction, flew in and out via the cat flap.

Monday 5 September 2022 - The Dales High Way - Day 5 - Stainforth to Ribblehead
After an overnight storm had cleared the air, a fifth t-shirt day beckoned. A perfect day was to follow.
We let ourselves out of the Craven Heifer before 9am, via the fire escape, after consuming what we could of the extensive continental breakfast that came with our room.
Beyond Little Stainforth, our path lay upwards through fields linked by high stiles.
There were lovely views across the fields.
