Langdale Valley Paths

Loft Crag, Harrison Stickle and Pavey Ark

The significance of the photo is in the old saying:-
"Oak before the Ash, there will be a splash!"
This is good, as the Oak trees were well ahead of the Ash today.

Pike O'Blisco, Crinkle Crags and Bowfell

Crinkle Crags, Bowfell and Rossett Pike

As rare as Hens Teeth?
What was noticeable was how quiet the Lakes were today,
perhaps the cost of fuel, or maybe the goose that lays the
golden eggs has been winged just a bit?
We managed to defeat the forecast today, we were promised showers possibly heavy. What we got were crystal clear views, warm sun, a light breeze, and no rain until later when in Ambleside.
The walk today was rooted in the valley bottom, starting from and returning to Harry Place Farm. Crossing to pick-up the Cumbria Way on the South side of the valley and walking back from the ODG on the North side. An easy day, the Southern and Central fells looking superb.
