Buckden Pike... at night

NNAS 'Straight to Silver' navigation skills course last weekend at Buckden in the Yorkshire Dales. We walked to the summit of Buckden Pike, from where we watched the sunset then navigated back down in the dark for a bit of night navigation practice. What a sunset...

Next NNAS 'Straight to Silver' course? 21st - 23rd February 2014, Buckden in the Yorkshire Dales

Team Building in the North York Moors

Team event last Saturday around Hawnby in the North York Moors, with SDI psychometrics delivered out on the hill.

It really was a beautiful day, and we watched the sunset from the top of Hawwnby Hill. 

Stunning light, as this photos shows.
