Wet Wednesday – N Yorks Moors

We were looking for a walk near our holiday cottage, and didn’t want to travel far.

The rather excellent AllTrails app suggested the Skinner Howe Cross Road loop.

What could be simpler.

Hop in the car.

Drive 3 miles, park up and take on the elements.

I rather enjoyed myself, even though our waterproof over trousers were still in the garage at home.

The ladies were convinced our 6.5 mile amble was longer than the 11.7 mile walk two days earlier.

Somehow I found it exhilarating, and far less tiring.

Flushing a covey of 20 Red Grouse was rather wonderful, but the roaring RAF jets, and spectacular rainbows were delightful too.
