OTHER WALKS AT HOME


We like walking.  Not just long distance walks, not always holidays abroad.
Here are a few photo galleries from our other walks  ...

Munro Challenge 2005

As we both work for the Environment Agency, in 2005 we took part in the annual Munro Challenge organised by our adopted charity, Water Aid.
The challenge was to raise as much sponsorship as possible, by getting a team on top of every Munro in the UK between noon and two o'clock on Saturday the 11th June.
Our alloted peak was An Caisteal (995m) which was relatively easy.
Good news is that the Munro Challenge was completed in style - the first time the feat had been completed, despite several previous attempts. HOORAH !!

A Week in the Lake District, April 2005

Arrived in Keswick on Saturday and bought some new boots at George Fischer. Spent the rest of the week breaking them in.
Some good walks: Red Screes; Bowfell and Crinkle Crags; a ridge walk along Buttermere; a gentle stroll from Tarn Hows to Coniston and back.
