Cheeky Sunset Walk   4 comments

After two straight, long days out in the hills, domestic chores intervened. Another gorgeous sunny day spent putting my daughters new bed together. There was just time for a sneaky walk. Not until I’d negotiated B&Q, school traffic and a visit to the waste site that was closed.

I’d plumped for Garway Hill as you can drive pretty much to the top but even that road was blocked by a guy loading up his car! The fates were conspiring against me.

I pretty much ran up to the top as I didn’t want to miss the sunset. The setting sun was working its magic on the bracken.

I made the top just in time so see the sun set behind the Black Mountains. There were a few people up there with the same idea.

It was mighty cold but well worth the mad dash along frozen lanes in the car and frozen paths on foot.

I should have thought to bring my stove and brew up to watch the show but I’d probably have missed the sunset altogether if I had.

I settled for a brief 45 min wander around before it got too dark to follow the paths.

As always, the bare gnarly trees caught my eye.

A day of domestic drudgery rescued by a mad dash to a local summit.
