The Third Peak

Well, it only took a year, but I finally manged it – the third peak.  You can find the story of Peaks one and two here: 

So, it was time for Peak number three, Ingleborough.

We put our best feet forward to start the trek:

 Note the new boots.  My old ones  were ten years old, and were really finished, so I was given new ones for my birthday.  I thought I had broken them in….

This was the start of the walk:

It took a long, long, time, but I made it!

Made it!

Legs and body fine – feet, well, not so good.  The boots are so comfortable – until you walk up mountains in them!

But, I managed it.  That’s it, the third Peak done.  Have to think of something else for next year….
