Perfect walking weather in the Lake District. Sparking snowy tops, clear blue sky. Actually, I’d prefer worse weather for taking good photographs, you get more drama but I shouldn’t complain.
You can drive to the summit of Wrynose Pass at about 400 metres and from there in about half a horizontal mile and 300 metres of ascent to Cold Pike of Pike o’Blisco and panoramic views. West to the sea. North to Skiddaw above Keswick. South east to Windermere and the Howgill Fells.
