About Me

Winter Hill ,Horwich, UK
About Me Jake ,I am 11 years old and have Autism. This Blog is about what I can do not what I cannot,sometimes people think I cannot because I have autism ,this blog is about challenging that!I have lots of special interests, in particular running, exploring and this blog shows a small amount of what I get up to! Please be careful as some of activities I do may look easy are not , I know Winter Hill very well I can get off safely and know what to do when the weather closes in ,to keep myself safe I use high performance clothing and footwear,waterproof/ breathable/reflective/thermal layers. in layers so I keep warm and dry , I take my safety seriously and I always take care when out exploring. My dad is very experienced on the fells he is teaching me how to keep safe.I can use a map and compass, the hills can be windy , very cold, be wet , misty and boggy. STAY SAFE! check out under my link's for advice on safety from Bowland and Pennine Mountain rescue. Try my Winter Hill Challenge

Rivington Pike, Rivington, Horwich - Bell pits drift mine and river Douglas ice stream walk -6C

Up the stream -which is River Douglas

a nice waterfall
 beautiful ice crystals
three fingered ice monster
big  ice crystals

these banks are steep and have a lot of loose snow
me on the snow
Note from Dad:
reason for Hot Chocolate from a flask -don't use water based drinks they freeze and the ice crystals irritate the stomach , unless you protect them from freezing !
Mine Building ? -has three doorways or gateways ?
