Latrigg is probably the easiest ‘best view for least effort’ fell in the Lake District, with it being a 10 minute stroll from the car park at at the end of Gale Road.

I was up early again today to catch the sunrise and it was well worth it to see the beautiful rising sun across a temperature inversion. Once above the haze layer the air was very clear – a fantastic and memorable day to be out on the fells.

There were two walks today, both in the pursuit of Casper bagging the last few of his remaining Wainwright fells. The first was a short and easy one up to Latrigg – I guess I am guilty of always bypassing this one for the lure of the higher fells. The second walk took in the fells around Loweswater. This area is probably the longest drive for me to get to from home, so I guess that is why they get neglected…

Another easy walk this lunchtime for me and Connie up to another family favourite, Latrigg. It was quite warm but there was a strong, cool breeze on the top.
