I recently took it upon myself to visit the small town of Ilkley in Northern England, just outside Leeds. With only just a few weeks to go before the semester commences, it only seemed fitting that I take one last attempt to centre myself in preparation for my final year. Okay that came off as a bit dramatic and maybe the visit wasn’t my idea but I did go. The Ilkley Moor which rises to 402 metres above sea level, was the reason for the visit. Perched on the Ilkley Moor is The Cow and Calf rocks which is popular with rock climbers and walkers. Once up there, the beautiful view of the town makes it all worth it.
Not being a particularly active person, climbing up the rock wasn’t a smooth ride. I also wasn’t quite dressed for the adventure, a mistake on my part. But thankfully I didn’t slip or fall *victory dance* and eventually made it to the top! Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will let them do the rest of the talking.
The majestic view from the top:

If you went on any fun adventures this summer, I would be happy to hear about them on the comments section below. Have a great week!
