Walking in the Lake District 2017 - Day 4

Penrith, Cumbria.

Friday 27-October-2017: Great Langdale.

This day we were joined by our co-host, Kate, who was able to get the day off work. A walk that she and Nigel had been wanting to do for some while.

The best weather of the week. Look at that sky. Walking weather doesn't get much better.

I insist on tucking my trews into my socks and carrying a map case. The former looks a bit naff but keeps my trouser hems clean. The latter is prudently essential on any walk - I love OS maps..

None of the route was particularly strenuous. Just as well as I am not the gung-ho mountaineering type.

This stream was crystal clear. A joy to see and a contrast to the River Wandle, my local, urban river.

More beautiful sky, typical bridge and crystal waters. Truly lovely.

Stats: 3:44 hr 12.9 km.
