Highlights

Yesterday we went up Dale Head, Hindscarth and Robinson. I don’t often have a favourite walk or mountain, but if I did, this one would be at the top of the list. It had mountains and lakes in all directions. Paul took this sneaky pic of me and the girls admiring the view from the far shelter on Hindscarth. .

High Hartsop Dodd and Little Hart Crag today in lovely sunshine. What a contrast to yesterday and the last time we attempted these peaks in April. The path as you can see is very steep but not quite as daunting as it looks from the valley. .

We needed a walk today so we ignored the weather and went up Hard Knott and Harter Fell. We squelch our way round and had limited views but every so often the cloud lifted and we were rewarded with a stunner like this one of Scafell Pike. .

No hiking this weekend as we are having some much need family time, babysitting and hosting a triple birthday bash on Sunday. It’s oddly tiring not to be out there hiking today 🤔Missing the tranquility of scenery like this. .

We spent Bank Holiday Monday on Grange fell. We went up via the Stairway to Heaven on to King’s How and then Brund Fell and Jopplety How. We then wandered over to Ether Knott and Brown Dodd and then on to Ladore falls. It was a very interesting route and we even saw some deer. The virus I had has affect my Coeliacs and left me feeling under par but it was good to be out on the hills. Paul was very disappointed that he walked 6.5 miles and hit 5 summits and it only counts as 1 Wainright 🤔😂

Today we decided to try a longer walk as Doggy Daycare has longer hours on a weekday. We went to Troutbeck and walked up Yoke, Ill Bell and Froswick in what turned out to be lovely weather. It was a 10 mile walk but we finished faster than we expected and so had some time to chill on the balcony (an unexpected treat). .

It’s Mental health awareness week. . . Without going into detail both Paul and I have had our personal challenges and have found walking of tremendous benefit. Hiking up mountains can help with mental health. It requires focused mindfulness on difficult paths, releases endorphins, improves fitness levels and creates a sense of achievement.......

Today both Paul and I were struggling a bit at the beginning of our walk up Tarn Crag but it ended up being a wonderful walk. We went on to Blea Rigg via Coledale tarn making it our 80th Wainwright. We had come within a few hundred feet of the summit last year but our daughter had a diabetic hypo and despite having sufficient resources we decided to return by the fastest route. Today we then carried on to Silver How where strangely there were no people! .

Bank holiday Mondays walk was just what we needed. We did an interesting circular over The Helm, Gibson Knott and Calf Crag and back down Far Easdale Gill. I’m so grateful as this time last year I broke my foot quite badly and it took about 3 months to heal. The doctor said at my age 😱 it might cause me problems exercising. It does still hurt at times but not enough to stop us. 😆

Today we revisited Martindale after many years. I took this looking down towards Ullswater from a different perspective off Steel Knotts summit, Pikeawassa (is it missing a ‘p’ on the end)

Walking up Brim Fell via Pudding stone, Boulder valley and Levers water was a peaceful start to a day on the hills. We met no-one till the summits. We walked past The Old Man on to Dow crag where the wind was carrying knives💨. We went  on over Buck Pike, Brown Pike and bobbed up Walna Scar. Such a happy circular walk 😄 So lucky. .
