Monsal Dale (and Trail)

Headstone Viaduct, Monsal Trail Today we decided to go for a walk in the Peak District. Monsal Trail is somewhere I have been before, but I’ve never seen the viaduct from the hilltop, only walked over it. View into the Valley

We set off early (because in the UK the clocks went back last night, meaning that when we got up at 8 our bodies thought it was 9) and when we got there there was plenty of parking.

View into the Valley We were following a route from the Walking Englishman, but skipped bits of it because we didn’t have a lot of change for parking! haha View into the Valley

It was miserable all day. I did wonder if the mist would burn off and the clouds might get more interesting, but no. It stayed grey and misty all day.

This afternoon (late afternoon!) we went for a little walk – just for an hour or so. We went to Eckington Woods and it was lovely and warm, but there was a definite coolness in the air. The light was lovely ^_^ and some leaves have started to turn, but most of them are still green… for now!
