Hiking in the Calcareous Grassland, Yorkshire Dales National Park

Uncertain footing: Hiking in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, England. This is like walking on marshmallows, and I did sink up to my knees in water at one point. These are internationally important areas of limestone grassland (calcareous grasslands). Rare plants include blue moor-grass dominated grasslands on thin limestone soils such as bird's-foot trefoil, fairy flax, mouse-ear hawkweed, wild thyme, rock-rose, limestone bedstraw, carline thistle, small scabious, marjoram, autumn gentian, bloody crane's-bill and mountain everlasting.
