Hiking in the Yorkshire Dales 2015

I’ve just returned from hiking and wild camping with a friend of mine in the Yorkshire Dales. We hiked from Settle to Horton-in-Ribblesdale, setting out from Settle on the Monday night. We arrivied at Scaleber Foss in the early evening and set up camp putting our bivvies up and having a night round the fire. The next day we hiked onto the majestic Malham Cove, stopping briefly at the Buck inn, in Malham village. The next day after camping at Malham cove, we went across the limestone pavement and headed up the gorge up to Malham Tarn. After a night at Malham Tarn, where a thunder-storm with hail stones the size of walnuts coming down on us. The following day we walked over Fountains Fell to the base of Pen-y-ghent and there again pitched up. Early in the morning we set off to climb Pen-y-ghent and then after the summit down into Horton-in-Ribblesdale and the train home.
