The High Peak

From Mam Tor you can see over to the valley of Edale.
The sun was shining hot on us when we walked up to the top of Mam Tor. Clouds would pass overhead, and we'd get cold. The wind was blowing, and we had to put our waterproofs on.
But this changing light meant that our views of the land were dappled with bright sunlight, and dark shadows, always changing.
Edale was more green of grass, and less of the darker green indicating trees and undergrowth. There was also more purple heather on the uplands. Apart from the other people on the hill, and the wind, the only sounds were the occasional thrum of vehicles climbing up the roads from the Hope Valley.
Beautiful clear air; beautiful quiet.
