High Pasture, Scales Farm, Ribblesdale, North Yorkshire, England

Here's more big wide open country and this pervades from Horton all of the way to Hawes. It's easy to stride at your own pace and relax on quiet well made tracks like these, so long as the 4x4 fraternity don't insist on churning them up. Personally, I cannot fathom why anyone would travel at 3 mph in a motorised vehicle when it's easier to walk than drive. Untrammelled tracks mean that you don't need to watch your foot placement or keep your eyes peeled for nefarious vehicles either.
