Pen y Ghent from Horton in Ribblesdale
A 6 mile walk from Horton in Ribblesdale, over Pen y Ghent, and down again via the Pennine Way. The weather was appaling on the ascent with absolutley no visibility and driving rain. Half way down, it suddenly cleared and we finished the walk in glorious sunshine.

Pen y Ghent, from the cark park in Horton......This was taken at the end of the walk as it couldn't be seen at the start!!!

The first photo i managed to take as we decended from the summit and the cloud suddenly broke.

A stream coming from a cave and pouring into Hull Pot

Looking into Hull Pot from one end

And then the other

The cloud is still clinging to the summit of Pen y Ghent

Now the summit is becoming visible
