Today, we climbed up a big ridge, and then made a wrong turn and went a high route to Grasmere rather than a valley route. It added about 3 hours to our day, and I am whipped.
So, my post today will be a bit different. i am going to write these couple paragraphs, and then add pictures with captions, then go to bed. Maybe, I can catch up the day later, but, in summary, it was nothing but steep up and down rock scrambles, and everything hurts and I need sleep! So, here comes a series of photos from the day…
International banker, now turned painter, collector, blogger and hiker. Also, in the last few years, a leukemia survivor, which has been a life-changer for me in more ways than one! Follow my blog at a-long-walk.com.

you got this Jeff!!!! so proud of you!
Yes, yesterday was a big milestone – hardest and longest day-walks behind us. Just made another blog post, and another one or two are coming out hopefully also today, to catch up!
Jeff, maybe I should shoot over there to help with navigation.
Well, Tim, if you can find us, please do it! We hardly know where we are. Actually, right now, we are in our planned B&B, so, somehow, we are figuring it out.
Can we call you Wrong Way Riopelle?
Kathryn, we have a GPS device with all the walk‘s way-points and route loaded. Still, we took a wrong turn yesterday that led to an exhausting walk. So, in short, you can call me Wrong Way Riopelle!
Hang in there, Jeff. Take a day off, if you need to recover a bit!
Matt, fixed B&B bookings all the way across. We have a day off in two days, but the next 2 days are the toughest of the walk. Then the day off, and then it is easier hiking the rest of the way – Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors.
