A final walk

One last day, one last walk. With the weather clearing somewhat it was time to go uphill. Time to try for a view.

[Looking back towards Kettlewell]

Distance: 8.26 miles
Ascent: 487 metres
Duration: 4 hours

Walk 11: Cam Head

We walked from from Kettlewell, a village keen to let everyone know it was the location for the Calendar Girls film. The views as we climbed were good but just enough mist hung around to make photos look washed out.

Back in the valley we extended the walk a mile south to the stepping stones across the River Wharfe. This was a good way to round off the week: meandering along with the river.

The total for the week stands at 50 miles' walking. Not too shabby. Perhaps half of what I'd do on an average week at the coast, but I'm not complaining. We relaxed and that was enough.
