Here I am: On top of the world

back from walkHere I am. Back from our walk. (OK. I forgot to take this photo while walking.)

Clambering over the rocks at Crook's Peak There is a range of hills that form the back bone of the Mendips. Crook’s Peak is part of it. From the top you can see for miles over the Somerset Levels, down to the sea and over the rest of the Mendips.

Perfect for a hike. And it is a hike. Even places to scrabble over rocks, if the well worn route becomes too easy.

View from Crooks PeakAt the top, we could see the M5. Carrying holiday makers to Cornwall and Devon. We felt removed from it all. Up in our hill site spot. On top of the world.

enjoying Crooks PeakLooking over the other side, towards Cheddar reservoir, we could have been a million miles away from everything. Almost.

scabious at Crook's PeakWe found a variety of wild flowers. Despite, or maybe due, to the sheep grazing the slopes.

great green bush cricket Crook's PeakWe watched birds and found bugs. We always do! We were drawn to the popping of the gorse as it dried in the sun. Only to find a Great Green Bush cricket.
