|Back down Swindale from Swindale Head|
Today I was out with Ian, we parked near the foot of Swindale, the weather was much better than the forecast, there was even some sun! The metalled road makes for quick progress and gives the chance to look round, no need to watch your feet here. After Swindale head the bridleway leads across a natural causeway to avoid the boggy morass that is Dodd Bottom. As the ground steepens the bridleway becomes less obvious and alot wetter.We could hear the falls above the wind a few hundred metres to the east until the angle eases and the path contours above Mosedale Beck. I'd like to tell you that the path dries up from here....but it doesn't, if anything its worse!

|Would have been nice if the stove was lit!|
Would also be nice if the folk who struggle in with bottles of
Champagne could manage to carry the empty's back out!
