|As I gained a bit of height the cloud thinned, things were looking better.|
|Once at the summit of Red Screes I could see blue sky above but all around was cloud.|
I had a butty and waited to see if it would clear...it didn't.
I reverted to my original plan and set off towards Middle Dodd.
|It started to clear....|
|Although as I looked back to Red Screes it was still in cloud.|
|Brotherswater framed by the dispersing cloud from the "summit" of Middle Dodd (This is a Wainwright with virtually no ascent in coming down from Red Screes!)|
|Further down the ridge and below the cloud even Place Fell was clear.|
|This of all things was the reason for todays walk....The Itch I Had to Scratch...this path beside Kirkstone beck was one of the few I have never walked within the Souhern Lakes.|
And very pleasent it was as well!
|Further up the path passes the Kirkstone...some idiot painted it white a few years ago, thankfully most of the paint has worn off.|
Just over the brow I was back at the car.
