This morning’s walk was a fairly round of Lower Eskdale which brought a mixed bag of weather with the greyness clearing towards the end with a fair amount of warmth. Even though these fells were small in stature for Eskdale, there were superb views to the head of the valley, especially from the lowly Goat Crag. The valley was very quiet today, a scene which will change for sure next week during the school holidays.
