Derwent Fells

The cloud was right down on the fells today when I set off along Rigg Beck for the Derwent Fells. I descended via the Wainwright monikered Keskadale Edge, a great way down with a few surprising ‘ups’ before the steep descent.


The recent humid weather continued today and the views were very hazy until the sun managed to burn through towards the end of the walk. I think Casper was feeling the heat today, so much so that he was nearly tripping over that tongue of his. Mind you, I was nearly tripping over mine too – phew, it was too hot to walk!


I wasn’t holding out much hope for the weather today as it was very grey and looked a certainty for rain – as it was I thought we faired pretty well as the rain held off for the whole round. This is a great way to reach the summit of Robinson and the views were good from there, even the high winds couldn’t spoil that.

A cold day, icy wind on the tops with some snow.
