Hewitts: Whernside

Date walked: 04/09/2011

First report for some time, a glorious day and great walk on Whernside, brought back wonderful memories of our Three Peaks Challenge done for a local hospice, a rainy day but wonderful experience. Today was great and there was plenty of fellow walkers as we parked near to the superb Ribblehead Viaduct.
