The weather was changeable today with showers blowing across Grasmere and the colours certainly look more autumnal now. The walk up Greenburn and up to the Helm Crag ridge was quite easy going if a bit boggy underfoot in places, but I think that’s par for the course around here. Today I was joined by Ken, an old friend.
