Reasons to Stay North

Reasons to Stay North

 

So this is why I live here!

The sun came out,

and I went for a walk!

After weeks of rain and wind there was hardly a breath as we got out the car by Dash Falls to begin another linear route over to Lonscale.

There was, of course, Skiddaw and Little Man in the way.

Snow painted the tops and clouds hung in the valley as I headed between Clough Head and Blencathra.  Promise of a good day.

Water crashed down  Dash, filling the valley with an eerie roar.

and the route up to Skiddaw clearly was not going to be a problem.

Cumbria folded away in every direction

Even the bikers had made it up.
