It was a bit grim this lunchtime when I set off for High Hartsop Dodd, in fact it was bucketing down with rain and there was a really strong wind so I ended up making it and ‘out and back’ walk, or rather an ‘up and down’ walk! It is a very steep climb straight up the front of High Hartsop Dodd and once on the top the wind was really wild and I was completely drenched. Lo and behold if the sky didn’t clear as soon as I made it back to valley level!
