Three sheep 🐑 scampering over the yorkshire dales. It’s not often you feel completely alone in england where you can’t see anyone for miles but the top of Malham Cove is definitely one of those places. Pity there’s no emoji for bleak moorland - not that it could convey how incredible and awesome that kind of scenery is - I’ve never been to everest but I’m sure 🗻 sums up the feeling of being there :) . . . . . . . vanlife moors wutheringheights thegreatoutdoors outdoors nature nationalpark adventure wildlife sheep englishcountryside britishcountryside autumn wild wildcamping wilderness
