The 3 Peaks from Horton - 24th January 2015

Hurrah, the first circuit of the 3 Peaks of the year and thankfully still with lots of snow about. That said, after a week of solid snow in Ribblesdale, it rained heavily the evening before the run, melting the snow at lower levels, and then froze overnight leading to treacherous ice higher up, especially on well used tracks. Not a problem though as we have kahtoolas and aren't afraid to use them!

Unfortunately Harry is on the injury list at the minute - a knacked knee (called a stifle in the doggy world) that will hopefully get better with rest over the next couple of weeks - so it was just me and Hester for this outing. Poor Hazzer...

Ice, ice baby...

Whernside ahoy!

It can be bit of a slog up Whernside

Hester 'summits'
