Walked with John on Sunday afternoon.

The weather forecast wasn't great but although we started off in the rain, it cleared out and the views from Green Hill over Ullswater and beyond on our way down made it all worthwhile.

On the path in the rain

Good path, gentle ascent

Slowly climbing. View south over Ullswater

A little higher

Weather getting better!

A good little walk with good company.

This was the Sunday? I was getting absolutely soaked doing Troutbeck Tongue and wound it up instead of doing Sallows and Sour How as well...but the Saturday was a cracker...did you get out then as well? I was across the water doing the Nab, Rest Dodd, Brock Crags, Angletarn Pikes and Place Fell...was a broken man after the walk out of the valley but a lovely day

Looks like I shoudl have stayed North...its a lovely walk along Aira Force there
