To mark my 40th birthday this week it seemed appropriate to go for a wander at the weekend. In the interests of blogging symmetry, I opted for another long-ish walk home from Edale. The weather was pretty grim and I had some real trouble with the boots I was wearing. I’ll have a grumble about these along with other kit observations at a later date. For now, here are some pics…
Leaving Edale and the rain stopped, for five minutes.
Dropping down to Jaggers Clough. Last time I was here it was covered in snow.
Crossing the clough and keeping those feet dry. Apologies for the selfie but the Goretex introduces a bit of colour on this grey day.
Looking to Win Hill.
The wall… this one had seen better days.
Crossing the A57.
Enjoying the spoils of Christmas with a clear conscience.
Deteriorating conditions above Alport Castles.
Time for a brew after pitching in the dark.
Made a decent-ish job of it though.
Looking for the Pennine Way.
Back on course.
Dropping down Torside Clough out of the cloud at last.
Taking a breather at Torside Reservoir.
I don’t know much about football, but I get this.
