Scroll down to see photos of the walk
The group gathers . . .
in the car park (but where is the leader?)
Looking across frozen fields to Pen-y-Ghent, with the River Ribble in the foreground, from the car park
An icy section of the Pennine Way . . .
from where we can see Ingleborough in the distance
What a contrast - no ice in sight
Kath tries to photograph the bottom of the pot hole . . .
while John prefers the high adrenalin icy ledge approach . . .
but the opposite bank gives the best view
Looking back on Horton in Ribblesdale
At an un-named stream . . .
the water disappears into more pot holes - with very icy surrounds
Ling Gill notice . . .
and looking into Ling Gill
Icicles along the banks of Ling Gill . . .
with their own reflections
Ling Gill Bridge . . .
with good views upstream . . .
as ice forms on the surface of the water
The group continues on the Dales Way . . .
towards Ribblehead viaduct
Gayle Beck Bridge . . .
a narrow route over Gayle Beck . . .
but the sheep prefer the alternative route
Ingleborough peeps out behind Park Fell
A new design for a mirror??!!
The sun catches the flanks of Whernside
Lunch finished and it's time to move on
Crossing back over Ling Gill Beck
Garry inspects God's Bridge . . .
a stone slab over the Brow Gill Beck . . .
and a view beneath the bridge
Limestone escarpment at Over Ground
A frosty Coppy Gill
Ayers Rock (or is it Pen-y-Ghent at sunset)
A final view of Pen-y-Ghent from the car park
