Best of Teesdale – The Walk

not sheila king and the cross fell range
This will be a fairly brief blogpost, just to record the walk that was the subject of another blogpost called roughly the same as this blogpost and which has got the same walk in it as the other blogpost. I’m sure you get the gist. The point is that I keep doing the same walk.
There’s only a few pics in this one due to my policy of not posting photos of DCC walk participants in which individuals can be recognised, unless they’re the stewards – so it’s back views and scenery only.
neville sheila and a punter's back
But the walk went well, Ray York was the main steward and his assistants were Doug Moffat and Sheila Pinkney, who’s name I got wrong in another blogpost a while back. Wupps Sorry Sheila.,, dhuhh…. I have a terrible memory for er..em…
..bit spread out...


Anyway, the route was the same and the weather was a bit cooler than before and the views were better than previously due to clearer, more arctic air.
moking hurth caves

I think people generally enjoyed themselves, and a few were brave or maybe daft enough to have a poke around in Moking Hurth caves – just the entrances, obviously, we don’t want anybody from Durham County Council having caving elf and safety wobblers. Nothing dangerous was done and roughly the same number of people emerged that went in.
Good walk, I thought. 21 People altogether including me and the stewards.
Lots of flowers……..nice people.

I like that third photo....the way that track leads into the shot seems pretty inviting - even though most of the people seem to be walking towards me....

They were following me, Trevor. I couldn't shake them off. My photography is helped somewhat by the software which lets me crop the pics.... nuff said...
