Pen y Ghent and Saxifraga oppositifolia

Pen y Ghent from the south-west
A tough day's walking but so rewarding not just for achieving the 694 m top of Pen y Ghent in North Yorkshire for the first time.  We walked up the steep way from Horton in Ribblesdale with quite a scramble from the south of the final push. Everywhere is very dry and it was surprising to see flowering heads of Hare's-tail Cottongrass, Eriophorum vaginatum, in what seemed to be quite a dry patch of ground.

Saxifraga oppositifolia
The icing on the cake was seeing Saxifraga oppositifolia [Purple Saxifrage] just at its best on the limestone cliffs below the summit on our way down.
