A few exchanges on Trek-lite page and James and Martin said they fancied a trip out in the lakes.I ploted a route out and returned it for vetting,some how it passed muster !
|High street and some passing cloud|
|Gopro still |
But it was warm on the few climbs up we had before our second camp
A browse at the map showed a nice spring near to where we hoped to camp,as luck would have it it was gushing away out of the hillside only a few minutes walk below the path
Our second nites camp was just past Yokes summit and it was nice to use the nearby rocks to sit on as we brewed and had tea,the temp dropping nicely after around 7 pm
As luck would have it,the cloud was brocken and gave some bits of nice dark starry skies
Think one of my camping friends had plugged into the national grid !
Dawn again was a quiet affair,the gentle snoring of campers mixed with the sounds of the days start
With some long drives home for James and Martin,we were away for 8 am again for the last 6-7 miles over the last two peaks of the trip Swallows and Sour howes
Even by 9 am the temp had risen to over 20c already
We followed a lovely path down,that ive used before....with the heather making a great colourful late showing
With the clock ticking and tired walkers i needed a way of picking up the pace......a quick mention that Wilfs cafe stopped serving breakfast at 11-30am..did the trick tho
A nice localy sourced breakfast was soon put away and goodbyes said...a good trip if a bit to warm at times ...24 miles and 7000ft of ascent
A short video of the trip,excuse the shite music
