Dawn from Pendle


Due to some depressing scenes in the cricket from Australia, I made a hasty decision to tackle Pendle Hill and lift my spirits.

It happens to be my 50th ascent of Pendle this year. Having passed this figure in the last two years, I wanted to achieve a similar figure and would have preferred a longer walk, but "seize the day" and all that. We had a meal booked elsewhere at noon and I had to get a move on.

Annual "selfie" at the top and along came another walker, unwittingly providing a silhouette-photo opportunity.
