JOGLE Day 32 02/06/17 Horton – Gargrave 20 miles

After being in clear view last night, Pen-y-Ghent was in the clouds this morning but I never intended to do the extra Pennine Way miles anyway so I set off on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks path to where it intersects with the PW and descended straight to Dale Head and along the road to start the climb up to Fountains Fell Coming down and approaching Malham Tarn I had a sense of premonition and decided it was time to lose the waterproofs. Not long after I met a fantastic young couple James and Mina who are doing LEJOG in super fast time – respect! Almost immediately afterwards my path finally crossed that of Louise Anthony (Instagram alter ego – knit.bake.stitch.roam) who is also doing LEJOG and we have been following each other’s progress for at least 3 weeks. Amazing feeling to meet like that and stop for a chat then off on our separate ways. Quickly past Malham Tarn through Watlowes and down into the ever impressive Malham Cove for lunch. I then ploughed on through farmland and along the river to cover the last few miles to Gargrave. Josy and Simon Greenwood treated us to an Indian meal and I was then surprised by the arrival of son Drew, daughter Suzanne and son in law Joe who had come to walk with me on Saturday also.
