Edale, Kinder scout plateau

During the weekend we had a friend visiting from Sweden, so instead of stalking a kingfisher the priority was to spend some time together.
Not many pictures were taken, except during a hike on the Kinder plateau which has the Peak district's highest peak at 636m. We started from Edale and it is from here the 429km long Pennine Way starts that follow the mountain range all the way from there to Kirk Yetholm in Scotland.
We hiked an amazing short route of about 9km, but at least we did something :) Up on the moorland we passed a section that is filled with rock formations called 'Wool Packs' which I have blogged about earlier. They do start your imagination, and this time we found one that looks a bit like a elephant with its trunk and a another one like an old mans face :) The plan was that we would go all the way to Kinder downfall which is the Peak District highest waterfall at its 30m but we changed our mind due the wind and that the mist was covering the area, so we took a short cut back via Jakobs ladder.

See you All soon!
