Walks go wrong for all sorts of reasons. Today it was a cock-up in the catering department. I started out with only enough food for a shorter day instead of the big day I’d planned. I wasn’t too unhappy, it was such a beautiful morning.
Still quite a few snow patches in the high north facing gullies and although it was t-shirt weather when I started it was pretty cold at the top when the sun went in. Quite a good view of striding edge and the cornices on the edge of Hellvellyn.
The clouds cleared again for the way down so I took some more shots of Ullswater.
