Photos from trips: Pennine Way with two dogs, May 2009
Photos from trips - see all our photo galleries
Roland and Caroline Jung from Germany joined us to walk the Pennine Way with their two Pyrenean mountain dogs. In this, our first season offering the full Pennine Way from Edale to Kirk Yetholm - all the 270 miles - it was a delight to put such a trip together. All photos are by Roland and Caroline, who also have a website full of pictures of this Pyren�enberghund breed.
Not far out of Edale, about to climb onto Kinder Scout
The gentle, bleak ascent of Black Hill.
Stoodley Pike, a prominent landmark in Calderdale in the South Pennines.
Stone flags in Calderdale.
Caroline and the dogs take a break.
Morning light over Ponden Reservoir near Haworth.
The peaceful, rolling fields near Gargrave on the approach to the Yorkshire Dales.
Relaxing at Malham.
Malham Cove, one of the sights of the Yorkshire Dales.
On Fountains Fell.
Pen-y-ghent with distant Ingleborough to the Left.
A sunny morning for the easy first climb out of Horton-in-Ribblesdale.
Beautiful contrast between the green leaves and the barren moors.
Looking back over Keld and upper Swaledale on the climb to the Tan Hill Inn.
Bowes and its castle.
The Pennine Way path is often no more visible on the ground than this one.
The thunderous Cauldron Snout on the River Tees.
Pastoral scenes on the day between Alston and Greenhead, following the River South Tyne.
Later this day, low moorland adds challenge before Greenhead is reached.
The Hadrian's Wall area... with a few stiles.
The up and down of walking along Hadrian's Wall. For a few miles the Pennine Way and Hadrian's Wall Path coincide.
In the dark Wark Forest on the way to Bellingham.
Above Bellingham the Pennine Way opens out into high fields.
A quick water stop. Stone flags are common along the Way, but not ubiquitous especially in the Northern reaches.
The scene from the Cheviot Hills, the last obstacle before Kirk Yetholm.
Boardwalks cross the peat bogs of the Cheviots. Here is Auchope Cairn; not long to Kirk Yetholm now.
A well-earned day off for the dogs and a perfect space on the train. Well done!
