Chilterns?

Are the Barton Hills the chilterns? I think so. Anyway, me and alimal went there yesterday to climb trees and get out of puff going up steep slopes.

I hope she doesn't mind me posting this picture of her. It's rather a nice one. Isn't she beautiful??!!

And here's the base of the gnarly old tree we shinned up. Anyone recognise what type it is? It's a proper climber.

One of my best holiday days.

Ummm... a Walnut tree, maybe? If I remember right they're great for climbing and they have smooth bark like that. Not sure if they get that big at the base, though. Anyway - looks fun!

we went walking in the chilterns yesterday and i did happen to notice how close to hemel we were! beautiful countryside and a very nice (saxon/norman?) church in little missenden. didn't climb any trees though.
