There are reasons I worked yesterday

Towards Buttermere

Looking towards the Buttermere fells (High Stile and Red Pike are the two in snow) — walk 107

Spectacularly beautiful day in the Lakes today — and I managed to work Sunday (yesterday), and a bit this morning, to shift things around and get a walk in to make the most of it. And very bloody worthwhile this was too, I have to say. One of the best days’ walking I have ever had in the Lakes, weather-wise.

Walk 107 took me from Keswick up the Newlands Valley, then via the Scope End ridge to Hindscarth and Dale Head, before dropping down to Honister then ending the walk in Seatoller.

Hindscarth and Dale Head thus became numbers 27 and 28 of my second Wainwright round: thus, I have 302 to go. Next walk (two, if I have anything to do with it) in the week immediately after Easter.
