The group pictured here walking along Great Whernside

 

JCI Manchester (plus Michael from JCI Yorkshire) took to the hills again with MTSG to lead a 15 strong group up and down the hills and across the moors of the Yorkshir Dales! Blessed again by the weather, the group started the walk with a slight (massive) detour which lead them up a pretty steep, boggy hill climb. But in true JCI/MTSG sprirt the group gritted it out getting on the high ground to enjoy the views! (Image above).

Starting in the beautiful village of Kettlewell, the walk took in the peaks of Great Whernside and Buckden Pike. It was a nice hilly loop walk across some pretty boggy terrain but the group soldiered on through despite the windy conditions on top. After reaching both peaks, the group with sun kissed faces finally made their way down into Starbotton (another little/massive detour) and down the river into Kettle well. What should have been a 12 mile hike actually ended up being a 15 mile hike. There were no regrets. It was a fantastic day! 

The next walk the intrepid adventurers will take part in is Helvelyn in the Lake District on Saturday 6th May! Feel free to book yourself on here. The more the merrier, no cost involved!
