Pushing hard for the title of “Best Walk of 2008″, yesterday’s hike from Glenridding with Rambling Pete was superb in all categories.
Although the weather started out a bit overcast with low cloud on the tops, it gradually cleared as we made our way along Striding Edge. The veil of cloud finally cleared as we left Helvellyn and we were left with an eye-wateringly clear view of the whole of the North West of England – and bits of Scotland too. We finished in bright sunshine after a great day out. Full report to follow in the Day Walks section.
