    Your Walk Today

    Actually my walk on Easter Sunday, but forgot to post it. Started in Beddgelert, North Wales, and along the path by the river, which is flat to start with, but then involves a bit of climbing and descending on a rocky section. Reached the end of the path and then climbed from Aberglaslyn up...

    Your Walk Today

    A lovely sunny day and at times it felt warm in the sunshine, certainly compared to the recent ice age anyway! I met some friends at Kinver Edge, near Stourbridge and did a circular (ish) walk around the purple route, taking in the intriguing Rockhouses, which I believe were what the Hobbit...

We took the service bus up to Fuencaliente and firstly visited the San Antonio visitor...

    Walk 2 (Pico de Bejenado) A proper hike and our biggest ever climb, for our second walk of the week. We drove to the Caldera de Taburiente Visitor Centre and had a look round, before driving up to El Barrial and parking the car at the bottom of the track. We set off with layers on, but it...

    Your Walk Today

    3 walks over the past week, for me. I travelled to the wonderful Canary Island of La Palma, with @Rickshaw Phil and we enjoyed a fabulous week of sunshine and scenery. Walk 1 (Roque de Los Muchachos) We hired a car and drove up to the North of the island and wound our way up many hairpin bends...

    Fight over Treetop Trek's plans to put zip wires over Thirlmere reservoir

    Why do they have to mess with the beautiful landscape everywhere these days? The attraction of the Lake District is the place itself, and there are enough thrills to be got from it.

    La Palma Walks

    I’m off there in February and so will let you know my thoughts on my return. I’m not sure it is known for its surfing, but certainly walking and scenery appear to look fantastic.
