Gone walking

Posted by Kevin Anderson

Suw at the trail head Suw at the trail head in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.

I can’t believe that Suw is letting me drag her out walking again, but she has. Last year, she let me drag her up a mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park. This year, we’re off for the next week to hike Offa’s Dyke Naitonal Trail in the Welsh marches, the area along the Welsh-English border. It’s much more mellow and some lovely B&B’s along the way, but it’s still a 70-mile walk.
Suw is taking her iPhone, and I’m taking my Nokia N82, mostly because it’s the lightest 5-megapixel camera we have. Apart from that, it’s a technology-free, blogging-free week. We’ll see in week, hopefully rested and relaxed.

    I’ve already told Suw how envious I am. I hope the weather is good for you - but that bit of country really is at it’s best when it’s a bit damp…

    My favourite bit is the high ground above Tintern, which I’m pretty sure is part of the trail. Not sure how much 3G there is round there either, so presumably we’ll have to wait for the pics.

    Have a lovely time :)
