I thought I’d do something different for this blogpost. Readers might remember, from the previous post, that my attempt to reccy a guided walk in Baldersdale went awry and me and the Pooch were beaten back by the elements in the form of fierce blizzards. But yesterday, as the snow began to thaw, 24 people turned up, plus a collie dog and including stewards Maria, Neville and Jane. The walk was tough going due to deep and soft snow which often hid deep holes and soggy, not to say, downright wet bits. There were many tumbles, plunges and slides.
But I won’t go into any more detail, but instead, I will present, for your delectation and delight, some of the photographs sent to me since yesterday by people on the walk… and a few of mine, too. They won’t necessarily be in any order and the only thing I’ve done to some of them is to resize them to the usual blogsize format and to add a caption which you can see if you hover a mouse over the picture. No other rodents will work, by the way. Just sayin….
All the pictures remain the copyright of whoever took them!
The walk was about eleven miles by the way, and a map appears at the end of this post.
And finally, for Judith, who bunged some of her hard-earned spondoolies into the virgin money-giving account, a picture of a cute dog, sunbathing in the window of the South bastion at Pietowers as I struggle on through deep snow in horrendous weather (see pics above). Thanks Judith. I’m about to make a small addition myself from the contents of the Pietowers guardroom swearbox.

It’s 11 miles by the way.
