High Rigg from The Church of St.John's in the Vale
Weather: Clear and cold. 0oC
It looked as though we would be in for a
lovely morning when I set off early for our
Lakes shop in Keswick and the first few photos show some of
the views on the journey. It was looking so good, I may never have got
there at all if I stopped at all the viewpoints along the way but there
was time for a quick sprint up to the top of High Rigg. This must rank
as one of the best commutes possible, a pleasure all the way!

Oh wow! What a view this morning with all sorts going
on in this photo - inversion in St John's in the Vale and over
Thirlmere, a cloud cap on Helvellyn with it looking as though it was
pouring over the top and a magnificent sunrise.
