I had a quick walk late this afternoon in the setting sun up on the east side of Coniston Water. It was so late on it ended up as more of a sprint than a walk to catch the last of the light.

There was low lying cloud and temperature inversion like conditions over the Crake Valley this morning so I thought we would have a short walk up there seeing as Angus was out for a jaunt with us too. I think even that walk was too much for him today and I fear that this really is the end of his fell walking career.
Start point: Stephenson Ground (SD 235 931)
Weather: Overcast turning to drizzle.
A short walk this morning over another almost undiscovered jewel – Caw and the Dunnerdale Fells. It is not often you can walk completely alone for miles, especially during half term, but this was the case today.
