Walk 17: The Howgills Revisited

Calders, Great Dummacks, Bram Rigg Top, The Calf & Arrant Haw from Sedbergh: All things being equal, we shouldn’t have even been here today, but as anyone who has walked often knows, Mother Nature is nobodies equal. We had intended to do all eight of the Howgills on our list, in one walk back in July, but had to abandon due to a swift change in the weather.

Walk 16: Passing The Buck

Buckden Pike & Birks Fell from Buckden: This was meant to be the penultimate walk but for one reason or another we still had two to do.

The weather didn’t look like it was going to play a major part in today’s proceedings, with the day being overcast but not too cold.

On a couple of occasions on earlier walks we had seen the Howgill Fells from a distance but today was the day we met up close. The sight of them as we approached was inspiring and I couldn’t wait to get started.

As always we were in no rush and as long as we completed the walk then everyone would go home happy.

Walk 13: Cloudy Nine!

Nine Standards Rigg from Nateby: I woke up with no hangover, no aches or pains and no car journey to start today’s walk. Having done about 12 miles the day before and had a few beers to celebrate last night I was pleased with my efforts as I headed down for breakfast.
