Arriving at Mardale Head the cloud was well down and the rain was being driven in on a stiff wind. I sat in the car for almost 45mins...it'll ease off I kept thinking....
|Yep, it really was this dull...and wet!|
|Lots of water about...the sheeting rain intensified from this point On up to Nan Bield....|
|...and onto Mardale Ill Bell. It stopped raining for a bit, so I snatched this photo. Looming out of the mist there's another person. he must have been as mad as me!|
|It was only 20mins or so to High Street...it was raining again. I didn't hang about, and with the wind behind me off I jogged to find the top of Long Stile.|
|As I descended Long Stile the rain eased...the wind was a lot stronger though I expected that.|
|Rather than go over Rough Crag I dropped down to Blea Water and followed Blea Water Beck back towards Haweswater and ultimately the car.|
It was raining again as I got back, rather a wet day...still enjoyed it tho'...must be mad!
