22nd April 11
Amazingly quick journey on Thursday ahead of good Friday. Picked up Sarah from Oxenholme Station last night. Weather warm and sunny but a rather hazy.
Went on 6.5 miler from Grasmere over Silver Howe with a drink in the Britannia Inn in Elterwater.
|Climbing past Allen Bank on the way up|
|Another stop to check the route. The real problem is that the 'green' path on the OS map doesn't exist anymore!|
|As you can see there was a lot of haze which rather ruined many of the pictures. This one over Grasmere.|
|On the ridge|
|Sarah adds a stone to the cairn|
|Just about to enter Hammerscar Plantation on the way back with its glimpse of Grasmere...|
