Longridge Fell Microadventure

Morning campers! 

I'm excited this post out to you. This is February's instalment of my year of micro adventure challenge. The premise is to complete at least 1 microadventure per month, I'll explain more in another post. The location for this trip is Longridge Fell which is a small forrest area located just south the southern point of The Forrest of Bowland.  Once again the area far outstripped my expectations for what we would get. We arrived in the dark and when we woke up (to the sound of blasting at the local quarry, that will get your going) the place just blew me way. 

Morning campers

We woke in the morning a little cold due to the damp but blown away with where we found ourselves! 

Time to head out. Remember, leave not trace! 

This was Rob's 1st Microadventure! It was a please to take him out and show him the ropes. It's safe to say he's hooked! 

Clearly someone had been having a go at building some shelters

Bellow is my interactive social hiking map of the route we took (orange is route in/ red = out). Click the icons to see various bits of info such as where the photo were taken and any peaks bagged. Or you can view the map on the social hiking website for more stats for the data junkies out there.  

Hope you enjoyed the photo's. For me one of the aims of these adventures it to get really great photo's so keep an eye out on this blog and the usual social networks where I will share more photo's as I work on them
