A great 3 days in the lakes. Day one, forcast was for low cloud and high wind so walked from Seatoller to keswick 8 miles and enjoyed the walk. day 2 weather was marginally better so went for high street starting from Patterale-Hartsop- Beacon then High street. The weather was a bit iffy on high street but improved later in the afternoon, with spectacular views over Hayeswater and Angle tarn.Day 3 forcast was good with moderate wind so took a chance with striding edge up to Helvelyn and returned via sticks pass to Glenridding. What a fabulous walk it turned out to be. This was the first time I had done srtding edge and it was truely amazing. Probably the best wal I have done to date.
