A grey day with heavy clouds and gusts of wind was the weather for 'Wetherlam' A big hill near to Coniston Old Man. A walk with lots of different terrain and wild views. We started in the tiny hamlet of Tibberthwaite and headed up along old miners paths, with glimpse's onto deep gorges, views towards the Langadales and steep scrambling to the top and into the clouds.
The start of the walk and a tiny sprig of Heather still in flowerThe rocky scramble down where we stopped for Fiona's tasty 'Rocky Road'
The cloud lifts and the 'Old man nearly appears' One minutes sunshine on the walk up, Blea Tarn is on the right, the langdales are behind the cloud.
