Week in the Dales: Day 1 (morning)

I arrived yesterday afternoon and set up camp at Mason's Campsite in Appletreewick (apparently pronounced Apptrick by locals). The weather turned very wet so I had a short walk into Burnsall, the neighbouring village. A fantastic meal in the Craven's Arms followed by an early night.

This morning saw a trip into Skipton where I bought RAB Vapour Rise jacket (a review to follow). I'm now off back to the camp to have a walk down the Dales Way towards The Strid, a local well known waterfall. The Strid is extremely dangerous and anyone falling in is dragged down to the bottom where there are large rocks being swept round washing machine style.
