Distance: 11 miles
Total Ascent: 1400 metres
Time Taken: 5 hours
Weather: Sunny and warm. 24oC.
It was an absolutely beautiful day today,
perfect walking weather. The sun was shining, the skies were blue and
there was just enough breeze on the tops to keep cool. This is a lovely
round of Buttermere and even better on a day like today due to the
great, summery views. If I'd had enough time, it would have been nice to
have a little snooze by Innominate Tarn in the warm sunshine...but never
mind, perhaps next time.
