On my trip to the North York Moors last weekend I saw snow, rain, high winds and bright sunshine. I was disappointed that the snow and the rain meant I couldn’t go bouldering, but I still had a great time walking along the coast, in wooded valleys and over the moors. Here are the highlights of my trip –
The beautiful view of Robin Hood’s Bay from Ravenscar.
I was amazed to find a lizard hiding from the cold on a standing stone on Howdale Moor. The cold was probably the reason he stayed very still.
I always really like visiting waterfalls on rainy days. This is Mallyan Spout, in the valley below Goathland.
Mallyan Spout and West Beck.
The stone row (AKA stone alignment) on Simon Howe Rigg in the snow.
Simon Howe – a round barrow (burial mound) on Simon Howe Rigg. Round barrows such as this date from the Late Neolithic to the Late Bronze Age.
