Walk Notes

Today I was walking with a friend I'd not seen for the best part of 15 years - so today had the potential to be an awkward, stuttering sort of day, but it actually felt like we'd never fallen out of touch at all. Mark and I both discovered the joys if walking since we'd last met - so a walk was the perfect way to meet up and chat about old times and what had changed, other than the state of our waistlines. Mark is also in training for the Inca Trail - jammy sod - so a good walk was required to keep the fitness levels up. He chose this one - a long linear using two cars - from Ladybower along the quieter of the two edges of the Kinder plateau and over Mill Hill to the Grouse Inn at the other end. The map isn't very clear - the zoom level required to get it to fit into the space below is too high :)
