Day 5: Ilkley Moor

This was our second day without rain, so we went for a long walk on Ilkley Moor.

It was quite a climb to the top, but when we got there the views were amazing!!

And a moor wouldn't be a moor without...

... more mud!!! :)

We were trying our best to stay out of the ankle-deep mud when three people passed by who were doing something that can only be described as 'kamikaze-jogging'. They ran down the hill, at FULL SPEED, jumping and slipping and waving their arms while trying to keep their balance, their legs completely covered in mud, while two dogs jumped happily around them. It looked so freeing, I almost joined them!! ;) We watched them run through the Moor, and quickly disappear out of sight.

J said they looked as though they were heading for Isengard... ;)

We crossed the Moor via a slightly easier route than the kamikaze-joggers, following a pathway made out of big, mud-free stones. I had a lot of fun hopping around, singing 'We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz!!!' while J was glad there was no one else in sight ;)

We walked across the Moor to the Cow and Calf rocks, where we had lunch.

The views were amazing and the rocks were very impressive.

And there you have it!! Another day in Yorkshire. Tomorrow: York!!
