|The objective was Silver How (clues in the title!), but to make more of the trip I walked from Rydal.|
Initially along the old Coffin Road, then down into and through Grasmere....which was remarkably quiet.
|Up past Allen Bank, and then out onto the open fell above the intake walls.|
Lion and the Lamb (Helm Crag) on the left and Seat Sandal on the right.
|A bit higher up, and with 3 litres of water picked up (that makes your pack feel heavy!) the view opens up.|
Everything does look very green at this time of year in the Lakes..as Ian pointed out on Twitter last night!
|I knew there was plenty of places to camp near the summit so went there first. Grasmere and Rydal Water were catching the evening sun. I descended a little to the North and found a good spotto pitch the tent.|
|This was the view to the South from just behind the tent, Wetherlam prominent.|
|Whilst to the West the Langdale Pikes dominate the scene.|
Anyone know what the correct name for the "rainbowy" thing is? I've seen it before but.....
|The sun set behind the bulk of High Raise, and so it was time for bed...said Zebedee!|
