Join 'A Three Peaks Up and Under' on Facebook
The blog has had nearly 19,000 views in nine months - which is not bad going, I suppose, for a site concentrating on just a tiny part of a small country. It's amazing how many people from the United States are in love with little Penyghent when they have the Grand Canyon and the Rockies! Hopefully I can get that 20, 000th view in before Christmas! In the meantime - please join my group on Facebook for all the latest videos, adventures and photographs of the Three Peaks: great to browse through when you are too tired for a marathon read. I am putting the finishing touches to the book on which the blog is based, which I want to be the most detailed and characterful book ever written on Ingleborough, Penyghent and Whernside. I'm losing sleep over headings .... and the fact that several potholes on the side of Penyghent have not had a mention ... and need to have. It should keep us all going through the dark winter months: nearly 400 pages of luscious limestone! More of a duffle coat than an anorak ....
The most popular post? Well - believe it or not the 'Scars of Feizor' from July is beating all the rest at the moment: not hard to understand when you see the vivid green landscape on a July Sunday. It is closely followed by:
'The Darling of the Early Tourists' - Weathercote Cave. Turner's famous subject seems especially popular with viewers from overseas. Many thanks for visiting and posting comments - and hopefully with your support we can get 20, 000 visits on the clock .
Keep exploring: Stephen x
