Three Peaks.
Due to the whirl of my own Yorkshire Three Peaks walking challenge I recall the exact position of these two characters in this photograph, but I would say they are stood on Pen-y-ghent, which [according to a certain on-line encyclopaedia] has an elevation of 694 metres (2,277 feet). There was quite a crowd of people walking in Ribbledale that day, but I can’t say I noticed them again as my walking companions and I made our way from peak to peak. Perhaps they had a completely different journey in mind. We’ll probably never know!

I did not take a lot of photographs on my walk around for three reason, because my walking companions and I were walking against the clock (apparently one has to walk up Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough, Whernside and then get back to where you started within 12 hours before you can say you have done “The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge“), but in the photographs before this one my friends are at the bottom of Pen-y-ghent and in the photographs after this one we are walking towards Ingleborough, which places these two characters on Pen-y-ghent, possible at the summit.

I’m not sure what drew them to me at the time. Perhaps it was combination of the view and orange beanie hat.
