I wasn’t expecting much from today’s walk as it was dull in Glenridding and the high fells looked to be under cloud for the day. I knew it would be cold though as there was a fair old wind whistling around Glenridding village. It was cold enough on Fairfield on Tuesday but this was a lot colder – almost like winter!
