Twisleton Limestone pavement

Parked in my usual spot at the end of Twisleton lane in Kingsdale crossed Kingsdale beck and followed the track up Twisleton scar, the vans the white dot.

 Todays intention was to stay on Scales moor and just explore and photograph the glacial erratics clints and grikes

made my way to the cairn at SD 71418 76283

for dinner a brew then beans and thin sliced smoked kabanos with home made bread cooked on a Crusader cooker running on a couple of Gelert fuel tabs and a spoon of Sterno jelled alcohol fuel in a 1oz pipe tobacco tin which just fits the crusader base, but is then snuffable by replacing the tins lid, wine was the French plonk again the only small bottle the village store sells then moved on to another cairn

these standing stones must have been forced in to the grikes by the ice as they are solid

The Bear started a fresh water franchise

As the sun started to set it was back to the middle of Scales moor, to my favourite spot :-

I then set off back to wait at the top of Twisleton scar to catch the sun setting over Arnside Knott

just thought I'd share cheers all Danny

Limestone pavements below Inglbourgh

I’ve had a couple of comments off the last post (a warning for A McEff) about visiting the Limestone pavements below Inglebourgh, if you click this link and let the photo load, then click on the photo and it will super size (then use scroll bars) 

if you look just to the right and below the top of my walking pole (leaned on boulder) you can see another Cairn this is across on the other side of the valley
here’s a photo from that Cairn looking back,and again this link will super size 
here’s an area map showing the (flagged) two photo positions
 I’ve done a couple of posts on this area, this one got no comments as it was at the blog start.
 I've still a draft from before this on the Scale moor side, unposted as well. 
I'll see how this goes and maybe post it ?
cheers all Danny
