Some strange goings on today. I parked at Powter Howe and followed the track straight up the beck below The Bishop. As I approached the top of Barf I saw a couple of people in big ponchos and wellies. The woman had a selfie stick and was busy filming herself descending from the top. It takes all sorts eh? I said "hello" and carried on. Up on top, I stopped to chill for a bit. I could smell smoke and wondered if there was a big fire on one of the farm fields way below. Then I looked just past the summit and saw one of those disposable barbecue trays, still smoking. I assumed that it was the people I had just seen that left it. Nice eh?
I ran over to Lords Seat and then took the usual track down, turning off to pick up the Barf descent track. I ran past the same people on the way back around. I gave them a stern look. That should teach them!
