The day certainly didn’t promise much as I set off this morning when everything was flat and dull. As I climbed towards Silver How, the skies began parting and the sun came out to light up the fells in autumnal glory. A great little walk this turned out to be and I wished I had more time to let me walk a while longer. The wind that accompanied the sunshine and blew away all the clouds was a cold one though, bringing a little touch of winter to the proceedings. Today I had some new Scarpa Trek GTX to try out too so we’ll see how they fare over the next couple of months.
Start point: Grasmere (NY 338 078)
Weather: Rain with low lying cloud.
Today’s walk was a damp traverse of the Langdale Edge and Silver How; the cloud was so low that there was no chance of a decent view today from the tops except for a brief clearing of the cloud towards the end of the walk.
