Hiking High Street Peak

The next morning we got up, got ready quickly, and hit the road to our hike for the day, High Street Peak.  The route took us down tiny little roads, as I’ve realized is very typical for the countryside in the UK, and over the above little bridge.  I love the little, old stone bridges […]

Castlerigg Stone Circle

Touring the Lake District

So I have been really busy since the spring of this year, with various vacations, weekend road trips, and a lot of work.  As a result, I’ve got so much stuff to post about now that life is slowing down a bit.  Back at the end of May, I took a weekend road trip up […]

A Cruise on the Lysefjord

Starting to hike up Pen y Fan!

Climbing Pen y Fan

In the beginning of June, a friend told me he was heading to Wales for a weekend, primarily to hike the tallest mountain in Southern Wales, Pen y Fan.  When he asked if I was interested in coming along, of course I said yes!  I had yet to see Wales, which I really wanted to […]
