9 to 5: Night Hike on Rombalds Moor #GetOutside

Cairn overlooking Ilkley
Got out for a hike after work now that the evenings have turned and the darkness arrives before the end of work! Which is a bit much. It always take me more effort to get out once it is dark. Starting from the Cow and Calf car park we did a 4.5mile hike up to the top of the moor taking in the 12 Apostle stones circle on the edge of Burley moor for a hot chocolate, and then on to the trig point on the top of Rombalds moor and back down. The lights from the surrounding towns glowed over the moor revealing some great views on what was a clear night and to top it all the sole from my friends walking boot! Which made for an interesting descent. Gotta keep getting out during the working week and enjoying the evenings on the moors despite the colder weather coming in, I'm looking forward to some more wintery hike and runs.
