Green Crag

Well, after the long hours sorting out Love the Lakes in Keswick – some in the shop and lots at home as well – it was good to get out on the fells once more and Casper and Dougal were certainly wound up like coiled springs and when I let them out of the car there was no stopping them. This was a good little walk; it was dull and grey but at least it was fine. The rain over the weekend meant the ground was sodden once more and I did manage to get a good boot full crossing Highford Beck near the beginning of the walk!

It was really overcast and grey this morning but quite warm and muggy. We had a shorter walk than yesterday across Birker Moor visiting some of the many rocky outcrops on this rough area between the Duddon Valley and Eskdale. On a better day, the views are extensive from here; today they were virtually non-existent.

Harter Fell

Today’s walk is a circuit of Harter Fell, taking in some minor tops en-route including Green Crags. There are great views of Upper Eskdale from Harter Fell, especially Scafell and Scafell Pike which looked lovely today as it was so clear.
