Vlog:Grisedale Pike – Abandoned!

At the weekend I attempted to hike Grisedale Pike. Sadly winds became so dangerous that they lifted my companion off the ground. Clearly it was time to abandon the climb! We will get here in the summer.

Even though we didn’t reach the summit it was still a great day o climbing and hiking.

International Dog Day – Barkley’s First Hike!

As today is International Dog Day I decided to share Barkley’s first hike. Barkley is my four month old border collie puppy who will be travelling with me over fells, mountains and wherever else he can go. Yesterday it was a gentle start over on Thieveley Pike in Lancashire and he had a whale of a time. The vlog is below. Please like and subscribe.

Bronte Waterfall Loop

The eponymous Bronte Way is where the famous sisters used to live and hang out. If you have read Wuthering Heights then hiking this moor allows you to see easily where Emily found inspiration for the opening scenes with Lockwood trapped in the snowstorm and lost on the Moors.

Yesterday I intended to go all of the way to the large waterfall but time got the better of things, however it is was a good hike with great scenery and plenty to appreciate.
