The Three Peaks

On the way back from North Yorkshire I could not resist staying into the evening light to take some photographs of one of my favourite areas – The Three Peaks.

The mountains of Whernside  at 736m or to me who is still in feet and inches 2,415 ft Ingleborough 723 m or 2,372 ft and Pen-y-ghent at 694 m or 2,277 ft are collectively known as the Yorkshire Three Peaks . The peaks, which form part of the Pennine range,  encircle the heads of the valleys of the River Ribble  and of Chapel-Le-Dale  in the  Yorkshire Dales National Park .

For those of you that have read my earlier blogs I have conquered Whernside or was it the other way around? I have yet to do the other two !
