Walk and run

With the cloud stubbornly clinging to the tops of the hills this weekend saw us in the Yorkshire Dales. With our impending trip to Kilimanjaro now only 6 weeks away it seemed like a good idea to actually do some walking.  The result was that 5 of the 7 heading off to Tanzania in January headed for the 'three peaks' this weekend.

Leaving Horton in Ribbledale on Saturday morning we headed up Ingleborough via Gaping Gill.

 Considering the time of year we could not really ask for much better weather.  The tops of the hills though had some snow and quite a bit of ice which slowed things a little.

Ingelborough completed by lunchtime, Whernside was next on the agenda.

Sunday, however, we reverted to type and ran 9 miles which included climbing Pen y Ghent.

All in all a smashing weekemd
