A walk through the world between places

Sleddale

Day two of our Lake District visit was a shorter walk, closer to our cottage base. It is on the Eastern Fells and follows the River Sprint up the Longsleddale Valley until turning East and climbing Over Tarn Crag and Harrap Pike before passing Grey Crag, then down to Great Howe and a return to the cars.

Waterfalls on the Sprint River.

It’s a slow stroll to the head of the valley, and boggy when you get there, worth it for the wide open views back down the Valley, a classic Lakeland walk. The fells are rolling rather than the craggy Mosedale round, so made a pleasant change from the previous day.

We took our time, enjoyed all the walk had to offer. Stopped for coffee, well done Pete, his pocket rocket cooker and Kath for being Mum. The Drop off Great Howe was fun as we clambered down the rocky outcrops, making more of it than was strictly necessary.

If some of the photos seem distorted, I’m trying out a wide-angle lens for my camera, it sits in front of the compact lens attached by a Heath Robinson affair that works at the moment. I just have to iron out the wrinkles. So we’ll see how it goes.

Keep heading towards the future.

    I wonder what words you will conjure up from this trek? The area seems so green and lovely yet a forlorn quietude permeates the vistas. A perfect place to get lost with one’s thoughts, Jim.

    • The best places to see always take a little work to get to.
