Paid a fiver to park all day at Littletown Farm, we don't mind paying the farmer. Getting up Scope End and Red Knott was slippery and not very nice. The same applied to the descent from Dale Head in what was a damp day in the clouds.

Sheltering near the top of Hindgarth

Dale Head suitably grim

High Spy

Maiden Moor - unmarked as far as we could see, which was not very...

That looks like a serious coat on your dog. Is that a hood I can see?!

It does have a hood not tried to make her keep it up though. She is only 8 months so not got a full collie coat or much body mass so keeping the chill factor down for her is its purpose, plus makes her easier to spot :}
