Yorkshire Dales, UK

By H.

Hebden - Grassington Moor - Linton Falls - River Wharfe

I was struck by the beauty of this route in so many ways that it was difficult to take it all at once and adjust to the surroundings. One of my favorite walks so far in Yorkshire Dales. It starts with an attack of green color, jumping over rushing streams, then a gentle climb along traditional stone walls and relaxed flocks of sheep, until you reach the end with a feast of "cuteness" in the lovely Grassington and powerful Linton Falls.

Keld - Crackpot Hall - Swinner Gill - Kisdon Side

The road to Keld was promising good news. Although this walk is quite short, the view from the hill and a stop for some warm tea at the old mill is definitely worth the long drive. The weather was not the best as the sun was hiding for most of the time. However,  passing by the green ferns, blooming heather and the view of the valley compensated the lack of good light needed to capture the beauty in the pictures.
