||Overcast with showers
||Leaving Hawes for the
Pennine Way we soon had to adjust clothing before the
gradual climb to Dodd Fell. To reach the summit we left
the Pennine Way and tackled the hummocky grass, stopping
for elevenses on the way. Leaving the summit we made our
way back to the Pennine Way to reach Kidhow Gate and
walked along the road to Cam High Road (Track). We soon
headed off path again to climb to the cairn on
Drumaldrace, then more hummocky grass took us down to a
good track and back into Hawes.

Lots of rocks to choose a seat for elevenses

A rather misty looking Ingleborough
With constant drizzle we seek the shelter of the wall for lunch . .
