Walking in Cumbria and Beyond

Walking the Wainwright List

Walking the Wainwright List

Sometimes I think that I would be better off joining a gym.

It would be warm.

It would be dry.

There would be wonderful aromas.

It would be sociable.

Running in a line, never going anywhere.

Talking to fellow human beings.  Through an iPod.  Plenty to occupy the mind then.  MTV.  Lunch with a franchised cappuccino

Even in this mild spell there is the snow.

Souther Fell

A few more hills

Mungrisdale

A bit of light and the odd rainbow.

Is there a contest?

Which would you rather do?

Twelve months ago – it was a little different

  1. With the exception of Mungrisedale Common, a great little walk though. Well done.
