A long drive over to the Southern Fells for me today - but a very enjoyable walk was the reward. Harter Fell (Eskdale) commands lovely views all round with many of the big fells in full view such as the Scafells round to Bowfell and Esk Pike.
A hot & sultry start to the day in very calm conditions was followed by light rain for the most part. The weather didn't offer the greatest photogaphic clarity although reasonable views were to be had for most of the day.
A commitment on the evening meant a four hour walk was my limit today, otherwise I would have included a walk down into Upper Eskdale, but I'll save that treat for another day.
Another slip up at the end though - missing Hard Knott summit again ! I've done this a few times in the lakes over 10 years of walking, two of these occasions being on Hard Knott !
