A Blog about the walking activities of Mick & Gayle, from short strolls to Big Walks, interspersed with other random thoughts about things outdoor related.
The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began; Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can; Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way; Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say. [JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

The Day 5 Campspot We Shunned
I forgot to take a photo of the camping area itself, but this is just along the valley, looking back down to the rarity that is a running stream. Even on this small snap, I think you can make out the trail running down on the other side of the valley. Having descended (gently, as always) all the way to the stream, we then made a gentle ascent, all the way back up the other side.
It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door [...] You step into the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to. [Bilbo to Frodo, JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]
