Well thankfully we can all go further afield now & stay out overnight, so without fail I took myself out this last weekend just to press the reset button in my head which I did but I never made it easy for myself by walking with a full pack weight of 45lbs up the 3rd highest peak in the Yorkshire Dales, then just kept going dropping down 100m in elevation along the ridge to another peak which I had to ascend almost the 100m back up again before calling it a night & pitching the tent.
Looking up at my 1st way-point on the route from where I was leaving the car, I was not looking forward to this part.
It was going to be painful & I can confirm it was! But well worth the effort of getting up.
And this wasnt the summit this was simply a beacon at the first Plateau but I made the summit & was still smiling so all good.
I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the trip out, just to get away and forget about the last year and everything that has gone on & get back to some normal things again. The rivers are very low in the Dales at the moment but am really looking forward to picking up the rod again but unless there is some rain soon it will be the walking boots that will be getting picked up again until the weather changes things.
