Trail (UK) - - Contents -

A feather-ruf­fler, any­thing with the word ‘great­est’. You couldn’t re­ally call Har­ri­son Ford the world’s great­est ac­tor, but we all like at least one of his films, right? And just be­cause an al­bum is a ‘great­est hits’ doesn’t mean it con­tains the great­est songs, as any­thing with those words and ‘80s’ in the same ti­tle would con­firm. But what about walks? Trail was chuffed to see the re­cent ITV poll – which got over 8000 re­sponses – re­veal­ing not only a hill in the top spot, but oc­cu­py­ing nine of the top ten. This is as sur­pris­ing as it’s wel­come – that the won­der­ful Bri­tish walk­ing pub­lic pre­fer high places to easy places. Or maybe it’s just that the feel­ings you get in the hills qual­i­fies for a higher es­teem in the be­holder, a more con­cen­trated me­mory, that un­mis­take­able sense of achieve­ment, a big­ger kind of be­ing... and if that’s not a recipe for true great­ness, what is? En­joy those beau­ti­ful hills, you beau­ti­ful peo­ple. Simon In­gram, editor (Twit­ter @MrSi­monIn­gram)
