Skipton to Grassington

If I hadn’t been inappropriately dressed, today would have been pretty much perfect. Even the fact that I’m nowhere near fit and I’m carrying too much weight around my midriff couldn’t turn today into anything other than awesome. Great walk across the moors with the heather flowering and the sun out. No wind to spoil the day and an easy start to the walk.
