Wild Camp on Dartmoor - Blanket Bog and Golden Light

The weather on Monday was glorious, with the promise of more on Tuesday morning.  That did it for me - a solo wild camp on Dartmoor was on.  (One of the benefits of being self-employed - I can massage my working hours.)

Cosmo & I camped by the East Dart River near Sandy Hole Pass, having hiked up to Flat Tor and experienced the delights of blanket bog.

The Dartmoor Mires Project is currently monitoring restoration work up there.  It is not an easy place to walk through.

Anyway, a lovely camp and back to Postbridge after watching the sunrise.  25km in all.

The golden light on the hills was breathtaking.  A few shots:
