Long ago, set in the mists of time (last week) we had an idea! A walk that would take us over some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet, a walk that would test our minds and body's and mental strenth
A place where walkers fear and some never come back from! (get lost)

This is the story of Two intrepid explorers and there journey over the rugged terrain that is called the White Mounth. The very mention of these hills strikes fear in my heart But i have a new understanding of these hills now, one of peace and tranquility (and a wee bit bog) lol Enjoy

Nice stroll.....

Good thing is, once you're up, you're up.

No huge amount of re-ascent.

Good work though.

Very true, I think the biggest drop we had was around 200m :? not a lot of ascent considering the distance and 6 hills :D
