These are pictures I took with my phone rather than camera for convenience or due to conditions. They are from both the ACT, ABC and around and about Nepal.
Pictures of my trek along the Annapurna Circuit Trek with the Annapurna Base Camp Trek along the way.
These are some photos from my trek around the Annapurna Circuit Trek in May of this year.
Had a great weekend in the lakes walking a 60 mile loop from Windermere to Ambleside. This took in Fairfield, High Raise and the ridge north of it and Glaramara & Allen Crags. First day there was zero visibility, but it was great after that. … Continue reading A Weekend in The Lakes
A great few days here walking and climbing. The hiking season was still a little way off as they get a lot of snow here. So it was ice axe and crampons and cutting steps which is very tiring, but it was worth getting onto one of the Norikura peaks for some great views. The … Continue reading Norikura-Dake & Around, Japanese Alps.

Wee disclaimer: If you plan on walking this route, … Continue reading A Couple of Days in the Northern Pennines
After having food poisoning last week and being in a pretty bad way I wanted to do something after to start to feel human again. I was keen to go with Mike, Ross and Dean to the Lakes as I had missed out on the Peaks earlier this year due to flu. So a nice … Continue reading Blencathra & Skiddaw in VERY high Winds , Lake District.
