Buckden Pike

It took 2 hours to get the 50 miles to Buckden. Parked in the car park for £3.50 for the day. Nice easy walk in, very warm. On top of the pike in 1.5 hours. Went and looked at Polish war memorial, there is a site all about it. Then followed the wall all the way down, snow still lying in the hollows. Quite steep in places. Located the path back to Buckden. As well as mating frogs on the top of the pike, I saw rabbits racing and 2 dead sheep. One was on the path and very smelly. It only took 1 and 3/4 hours to get home. Wish I could get to the Dales more quickly. As it is, I could have been in the Lakes in the same amount of time, just twice the miles.
