Day 123 of 365: Great Malvern Hills!

This is where Matt and I went today! He has only been talking about it since my first visit in 2006 and we finally had the freetime and extra money for petrol. The photo was taken of me atop Worcestershire (w-oos-ter-sheer) Beacon - the highest point in all of Malvern Hills at 425 metres above sea level! The rock formations comprising Malvern also date back about 600-million years! Malvern Hills as a whole stretch for nine miles. I'm just a regular encyclopedia! Thanks, Google and tourist information!!

It was a great day for a walk, except for the fact that it was a bit windy at the top, and Matt forgot to bring a hat or something with a hood. We made a mental note for next time.

Here's Matt facing into the wind (coming from the East). The wind was so strong, you could lean forward and it felt like it was concentrated solely on you! Wild!

The views were gorgeous though!

I also have new photo albums pasted on my MySpace and Facebook, so let me know if you have any problems getting to those.

This will definitely be a trip that we will have to make again in warmer weather.

I love the Malvern Hills!

We walked through them once with heavy packs and a tent on our back. After several falls, we realized that the easiest way down to Malvern was on our bums, so we slid all the way to the bottom - laughing the entire way.

Happy days. :)
