I must say what a good job Martin did with the navigation bit. Considering that it was dark when we did the walk on tuesday, i still had 2 places where i went away from the route Martin did.
Not on purpose you understand, i just went wrong and although it was obviously wrong, i still say well done Martin for picking the right paths in the dark.
There is no need to do a walk review because of the post i did earlier and Martin’s blog post which is here.
This morning was a lovely bright start but as we parked the car it was dull and grey and looked like rain. We only just managed to get a parking place as the area was chocker block with visitors. I must remember if i come this way again, to get here early and get away from the crowds and the hounds as quickly as possible.
The path was just as muddy as tuesday and if anything the temperature was much cooler. Up at the high point, Rivington Tower, it was damned cold with a cutting breeze, no view what so ever of the masts on winter hill although the Two Lads cairns were visible. (There are 3 cairns now for some reason). I knew we should have gone East today for the better weather instead of West.
So i have a few photo’s from today to share and the first one is the only one i took from tuesday night.
It wasn’t as dark as this today.
I hadn’t realised on tuesday night, the trio of “You can see me now jackets”.
