Sheep and clouds in the Dales

Plenty of map reading this week

Camping with the locals


Sunshine and showers

Signage on the Pennines


Pennines, Fountains Fell

A misty Ingleborough summit

Cold, clear nights

More fields, more sheep

Limestone pavement

Malham Cove, wet
Plenty of lambs
My annual foray down to the English Yorkshire Dales last week, working on the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Several Bronze, Silver and Gold groups out in the lovely Dales countryside. The lads getting some vital training before their assessment later in the year. Plenty of navigation, camp craft and first aid skills incorporated. We had the usual mix of sunshine, showers, cold winds and cloud. This week I was working for Addventure who provide top class training on DofE Awards.
 Back home and there has been a dusting of snow on the higher tops of the Cairngorms and other areas in the Highlands with the northerly airflow last few days. Of course we all know that there is more chance of snow falling at Easter than at Christmas time, don't we? So no great surprise. Don't worry, I am sure Spring will resume again soon.
