Higger Tor, Peak District, UK

I’ve just returned from a week in the UK, visiting my daughter, Sarah, in Sheffield; my dad, sister and brother’s family in Kingston-upon-Hull and some of my mates in York.

The only exercise I had (other than some right and left arm ‘beer lifts’ – of course 🙂  ) was a walk with Sarah in the northern Peak District.  See map below (pic 15).  It was a circular walk from the Upper Burbage Bridge car park, over the oddly named Higger Tor and Carl Wark to Toad’s Mouth, before returning along Burbage Rocks.

On the way we met dog walkers, cross country runners, climbers and other photographers trying to capture the ‘mer de nuages’ (sea of clouds) in the Derwent or Hope valley.  We also indulged in a bit of rock jumping – to test the multiburst on my little camera. (Pic 6).

    • Yes, it was nice to get out into the English countryside for a change. The full set of ‘jumping’ pictures look funny when viewed together – though there’s not much style on my part! By pure chance my friends in York have just come back from San Francisco (+Yosemite and Grand Canyon) and were showing me some pictures of the Golden Gate. So I can’t wait to read your book! 🙂
