Far better than the football
Red tarn from low spying how bottled striding edge due to the wind :lol:
It was a beautiful clear morning I was the only person up there til half way back down. I didn't go to Helvelyn summit, I was in my running trainers and didn't fancy either of the edges to the top despite the nice weather, although there was a bit of snow at the top of swirral edge. After just watching Markredfoxs youtube video i'm glad I didn't!
Not sure if its been mentioned on here or not (too lazy to read through every thread) but did Murton Pike today near Appleby with my daughter, must have been 30 years since I last went up there, went up this morning in the sunshine but clouded over as we were descending, fantastic views up the Eden Valley, going to do High Cup Nick next week.
You just forget what a beautiful County we live in!!
Chances are that the only way that I will ever get to see these beautiful views are on here or if I ever get rich enough to purchase a helicopter
Some of them though I would not be able to do in my youth, no chance.

I hope all of you on here who live in Cumbria appreciate just how lucky you are. Drove into the county tonight on the A66. Was like the middle of winter driving past Stainmore on that high bit and even had the fog lights on. Yet, passing Blencathra could see Newlands and Borrowdale looking stunning with the last of the sun and the clouds hugging and drifting across the hills.
Whoever has that banner at games that says to be born Cumbrian is to win the lottery is not far off.
Makes you feel good to be alive.
Get yourself moved up here ncf,you know it makes sense.
