A fairly easy walk in the Northern Fells today. Didn't exactly go to plan though. I actually 'slept in' and set off much later than I normally do - that wouldn't matter too much this time as the parking would be straightforward and also it's just about the easiest part of the lakes to get to for me. But there was also a problem on the A66 so I had to do a significant detour. To cap it all, I was chatting with my son and missed my turning and almost ended up in Keswick !!
In addition the weather was pretty gloomy - Weatherline had given me the impression that it was going to be 'bright' for the first half of the day, but that certainly wasn't the case. I shortened the walk when leaving High Pike, I had intended to do a sort of out and back to Carrock Fell but with limited daylight and a night out planned I ditched that idea. Anyway, a nice 10 mile walk albeit with limited views this time.
