I've been meaning to post these for a while but keep getting sidetracked. This is a walk I went on a couple of weekends ago to a place on the edge of Dartmoor, called Lydford Gorge. It was just so beautiful I had to show you, even if the pics are more scenery than dog.
A lovely trail through the forest
Which winds down to a stream with old copper mines alongside. I could smell the bats in here.
And then I got to swim below a 90 foot waterfall called the White Lady.
The way back was along precarious paths on slippery stone. A lot of the time the humans had to hold on to the handrail and even my feet were unsteady. The river would suddenly gush down through cuts in the rock and over rapids and waterfalls. Dogs definitely not allowed off lead! The roaring noise of the water spooked me a bit.
At one point the river falls into a chamber it has cut which they call the Devils Cauldron. It's like a cave full of roaring water swirling boulders around making a huge noise. Dogs weren't allowed down there and you can see why - this is the way in and the steps are on the top left.
But I really impressed Mum and Dad when they took me on the metal walkway above the Cauldron. The noise is deafening, and I could see through the grille I stood on right down into the waterfall below. I only hesitated once, but then went straight on over. Cool me, huh?
