Bog Trotting Take Three

Although really this should have been numero uno as it precedes the two previous shots in time. Looking across the hill as we climb, The view is more or less north towards the second of the two peaks that compose Brown Clee. The first peak is just in shot on the right side of the picture and in the mid ground is 'Abdon Burf', the remains of a large Iron Age fort, mostly concealed behind the trees in the centre.

@Adela Fonts Artús: Point taken. Poorly constructed sentence on my part. I have added quotation marks to point out that it's the name and un-split the infinitive. ;)

Vivid colors for this north seems to indicate that we have to go follow the red-brown path.
