Have you ever been asked what do you do with all your photos? As a mountaineer who loves to take photos, like many, I have thousands of photos stored and gathering dust, some are naff some are ok.
They cover a wide range of activities in fact anything that gives me an excuse to go walking, scrambling, mountaineering.
Hopefully there will still be something for everyone, if anyone wants to contribute feel free.
Remember each photo has its own story and this is my way of putting them to use.
again we returned to our new fave mountaineering hut in the Dales for
a few days, am totally blown over by this place. Traditionally if you
use other clubs huts you have to formally book in advance just like a
Youth Hostel BUT my climbing club has done a deal so that we just
need to ring up to get quick access within minutes, ideal if you are
weather dodgers like us.
if you want top quality accomodation in the Dales for £5.50 pppn
this is the place.
again the temps were up, hot sweaty ascents up steep inclines are
never my first choice so during the heat of the day we slunk of into
the cool shade of Foredale a north facing quarry for an afternoons
early finish took us back to the hut for a snack and we are out for
an evening walk round the Moughton Scar area finishing in darkness. I
just love the stunning, almost plastic light in the hour before
sunset. just time for a late tipple back at the hut after a full on
day is same again after a later start BUT tonight the plan is to do
an evening walk round the Ribblehead and pitch the tent so we can
sample the equally gorgeous light conditions in the hour before dawn.
time we return back to the hut for a late breakfast before packing up
and driving home.
