A glorious sunny day in the Lakes and you forget 2 weeks of rain, walking footwear on and up the fells for a day of 'wainwright bagging' Started in the tiny hamlet of Hartsop, passing waterfalls gushing down from Hayswater a beautiful solitary tarn.The high street is above!
The high street was once a Roman road, the mountain bikers leg supports reminded me of Soldiers, marching up the fells, this bike ride was not for me!! I was puffing without the aid of a bike on my back!
Hawswater from Kidsy Pike the 3rd top of the day.
No Soldiers or Shops in sight along the Roman road to High Street, the forth of Six tops we did.
Love the Blues of the distant mountains, warm Yellow Ochres of the fell and the texture in the grasses.
All the way down back to the car from Gray Crag a glimpse of Brothers water on your left.
Think this would make a nice painting, sat for a while studying it, well that was the excuse for a well earned rest! The barn roof was growing a lovely lawn of grass.
I never saw an ice cream van or shop all day! Deffinitly not on the High Street!
