Orrest Head

It is still amazingly warm for the time of year but the skies were leaden and full of threatening clouds this morning. I didn’t fancy anywhere too high, which was a good thing really as I forgot my boots…I wouldn’t want to ruin my Gucci loafers crossing Striding Edge, would I?

Firstly, couple of photos I took on Sunday when I was on my way to Love the Lakes, Keswick…

The snow was heavy and constant for our walk up to Orrest Head this morning and this meant that all views from this renowned viewpoint were obliterated. I find that walking through snow clad trees on snowy paths has its own merits though, and coupled with the muffled and muted sounds it still makes it a different but nevertheless enjoyable experience.

Winter seems to have returned once more and there is snow on the high fells, in fact it was snowing when I set off for Orrest Head at lunchtime and the wind made it feel really cold. No hanging around for me and the boy wonder then, so it was straight up and down today.
