Wednesday 8th August 2007
I was out on my own today as John's knee is still being rested. As I walked along Derwent Edge I hardly saw anyone but when I reached the path from Back Tor to Lost Lad I passed lots of people all walking in the opposite direction, usually with a 'Peak District Pathfinder' book in hand. I was to pass them all again as I walked alongside Ladybower which was very busy with people making the most of the good weather.

The Vale of Edale and Kinder Plateau were
