|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!
