Roseberry Topping from Cringle Moor

We have been orienteering on the Cleveland Hills today. It has been a raw day, with snow threatening and a snowy covering on top of the moor, but we put on our thermal layers and enjoyed our courses and the views (when they appeared beneath the leaden skies). I said recently that I have taken to carrying my small camera with me on my runs and this blip was taken just before I was due to run, from the start half way up Cringle Moor. I felt for the start team who were exposed to the wintry blasts, at least we would soon be on the move. In the distance you can see Roseberry Topping which is a popular walking hill. Tony and I did our teacher training north west of this part of the world and spent the early part of our relationship walking on these hills, later taking the girls there for the October Odyssey, an annual orienteering event held by the local club. However, it has been some time since we have run here and we were both glad to have made the trip, once we had changed out of our wet clothes, warmed up freezing feet, opened the flask and had a slice of our Jenny's delicious lemon drizzle cake (my Mother's Day present!)
