Two Lads, Winter Hill, Noon Hill, Pike – Tuesday

Wonderful to be out on our local hills tonight, short run out of just under seven miles.  Lots of cyclists, walkers and runners enjoying the sunshine and the ever changing skies.

Blencathra and Skiddaw

Arriving early in Threlkeld to a disappointing shower of rain, but the sun was already beginning to break through providing stunning vistas below the cloud.  Cold wind on the summits but the sun melting the snow in the afternoon.  Perfect day more here if it’s of interest.
