This wasn’t the walk that was planned for this weekend, originally I had ear marked Cosdon Hill to Hangingstone Hill as the walk for today. However when I joined the A30 at Okehampton, having driven through some sunshine around Lydford, I hit low cloud and grey skies. I turned around and headed back to Lake to have a walk around Hunt Tor instead, hoping to have cloud free tops at least. The day was mostly free of cloud, just, however the sun never came out and as a result the day was mostly painted in the grey palette!!
