It was a bit of an unplanned walk today; I
didn't really know where I was going until I got there and I
only ended up at Hartsop due to roadworks at Troutbeck
'forcing' me over Kirkstone Pass rather than sitting in a
lengthy queue. As it turned out, I was glad I went over that
way as there were some decent sunny spells and still a bit
of lingering snow even though it was quite warm - all in all
a rather pleasant days walking.
