Missed it!

The safari learned this morning that yesterday was International Mountain Day - we didn't have a clue even though we included a pic of a 'mountain' in yesterday's missive...something subliminal going on???
Can't really call Parlick a mountain as it's only a small outlier of the larger, but still small, Bowland Fells and stands a huge oxygen deficient 1417ft (432m). In yesterday's pics the green tree covered hill to the right is Beacon Fell which is much smaller still at only 873 ft (262m) but as it stands alone it affords great views in all directions...well it did until the forestry trees grew. However there is a long term management plan to replace the conifers with native woodland and increase the area of heath at the the summit. 
Where to next? Back later with tales of woe from dipping today's intended quarry due to torrential rain.
In the meantime let us know if your outback has a long term management plan.
