Dartmoor: Cosdon from South Zeal

Not going to take any credit for the route of this walk, it must go firmly with a new book I picked up this weekend; "Walk! Dartmoor". A first for me to explore this side of the mighty "bear back" that is Cosdon Hill. For a copy of the book and other areas in the series, go to the Discovery Walking Guides Website.

Dartmoor: Belstone to Okement Hill

Awoke early but in no mood to stir from my tent. As suspected yesterday, I had definitely made an error of judgement in thinking that summer had arrived and the one season sleeping bag would suffice, and it made for an uncomfortable night. Outside, the clag had descended on Princetown, but rather than bemoan the lack of a view, I took it positively, and saw it as an opportunity to practice some navigation.

Dartmoor: Down Tor

Good to be back on the moor and pleasantly surprised to see the sun out once again! Getting up at 5am for the long drive down to the South-West had paid off, and I had an extra day's walking. Fully kitted out for a night out should it take my fancy, I was off on to the South Moor before midday.
