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]

Contrasts: Black Hill

When Mick and I tootled up the Pennine Way in 2008 (22/5/08) Black Hill was very black, albeit sprinkled with white pellets of fertiliser as part of a re-greening project. This is how it looked:

Black Hill

What a contrast it is now. This photo was taken yesterday (17/6/10). It seems that the re-greening has been successful:

Black Hll It’s rather pretty now. And you can’t fault that sky, can you?
