Grassington to Buckden

Another glorious day in God’s Own Country with even the couple of 5 minute showers failing to ruin the walk. The upside of showery weather is that the cloud displays are normally something to behold and today was a prime example. I spent most of the morning looking ahead to the skies above Wharfedale and Littondale, so much so that I fell over twice for not paying close enough attention to my foot placement.
