Climbing Roseberry Topping in North Yorkshire, England for #13 of #48walks
I noticed a subtle difference between walking in North Yorkshire and walking in Aberdeenshire. The air was just a few degrees warmer and the fields a slightly brighter shade of green.
The kids and I found this walk that was just a few miles from where we were staying in Middlesbrough.
Roseberry Topping was perfect for us because you can see your goal the entire time.
Seeing the top makes it feel closer than it is, so the kids were constantly running ahead.
I am usually dragging my kids out for walks these days, but then they are always way ahead of me.
Partly because I can’t help but stop to turn around and take in the views.
Spidery Sycamores + Yellow Fields = Gorgeous!
360 degree views from the top (first photo) were unbelievable, but it was crazy windy up there! We quickly dropped back down to the other side of the hill after spotting this little monument.
We started this day on this hill and ended it playing in the sand by the North Sea. Pretty much perfect.
Here’s a map and description of the walk and lots more photos in the Google+ album.
