Thought I’d take a look at our local patch this afternoon and wander round the Kentmere Horseshoe. I decided to walk up the valley towards the reservoir this time and then catch the path up towards the Nan Bield Pass. It was a hot and still afternoon and fairly quiet along the top. I was intrigued by the digger along the path from Yoke building a new path. How did they get it up there? I’m not totally sure about it, but for now it at least means that the huge bogs can be avoided. Got back to the car in 4 hours, tired but happy.
PS. The picture is from a previous trip round the Horseshoe with Anna & Ian.
It’s one of the best scrambles in the Lakes! So what better way to kick off the Easter Bank Holiday weekend?
Great exposure, some fun scrambling and a stiff (freezing) wind…
With weather like this you’ve just got to get out!
We drove up the Newlands Valley to see if an ice route I know there-about might be frozen, they say it should be if Derwent Water is at all frozen (and it was). But alas, the route was mostly running water with a few ice smears.
But we had a great bumble in the lovely winter sunshine!
Not the best weather (zero visibility on the top) but never-the-less, a dry day to kick off the new year in the Lake District!
Well not quite Xmas day, but just after… What wonderful weather – this has to be the best way imaginable to walk off that massive Xmas dinner?
