Wasdale and Irton Pike

Firstly, some photos of a glorious sunset up on Birkrigg Common near Ulverston on Sunday evening…

Irton Pike

It was grey and overcast yet again this morning but very still and warm, the peacefulness shattered by many RAF jets screaming overhead today. We had a walk up to Irton Pike above Eskdale, the easy walk was made harder by the amount of trees still lying across the paths around the afforested base of Irton Fell.

Irton Pike

I’m under doctor’s orders today but exercise was recommended so it had to be an easy walk taken at a gentle pace. The Irton Pike/Irton Fell route was ideal as it gives great views of the high fells without being too strenuous. There were still many trees lying around in the Miterdale Forest and the surrounding woods having been blown over by the recent high winds.
