Kinder Scout

Kinder Scout is the highest point in the Peak District; not quite a mountain but still pretty flipping tall.
One of my resolutions this year was to climb it.
 Lovely friend Kath and I had spent New Year together so a lot of our resolutions for this year are similar and we are spending more time together than we have for years which is great.
Last Sunday was gloriously sunny and hot, the sort of day we rarely get in the UK, definitely weather we can't rely on. This week the weather has turned and its back to typical grey skies and drizzle.
We set out from Hayfield  and skirted round Kinder reservoir before ascending the hill.
We met several sheep and not as many walkers as we'd expected, perhaps it was just too hot.
It took us around seven hours to complete the circuit and we returned home sun burnt, wind burnt, tired and happy.
