Tan Hill Inn to Apedale

If not for the wind, today would have been the perfect walking day. Fresh, sunny for the most part and great company. The crossing of Arkengarthdale Moor was splendid, a fine path with spectacular views of the remote moor and a partial solar eclipse to top it off, the resulting light was extraordinary. Out of the wind for the walk through the valley was a beautiful respite and Reeth topped of the tanks for a tough climb at the end of a long day, up and over Greets Hill.
