Haweswater Horseshoe

My friend Dave came to visit this weekend, and after an aborted walk on the Friday (I got a call to assist Keswick MRT with a fallen walker on Sharp Edge), we headed to Haweswater yesterday.

With the cooler temparatures, I was expecting a dusting of snow overnight, but we were treated to a good covering at higher levels. The cloud lifted during the morning and by the time we got up to High Street, the tops cleared and an inversion took hold – it was stunning. I was also looking after Pete’s dog “Midge” for the weekend – I think she enjoyed herself too!

Here’s a taster…

  1. Fantastic pictures… I had heard that it was stunning up there yesterday.
    Cool snow angel, I thought it was some sort of Celtic Cross at first?! 🙂

    Shame the weather has reverted back to the usual rain 🙁

  2. Great pix Jon; Skiddaw, Blencathra and the western fells looked amazing from Borrowdale with the low cloud and angle of light, but we hadn’t brought a camera, doh.
