Wheeling along the Bridleways

Looking up the Grizedale Valley.

Today was the last day of my holidays; tomorrow I return to the hectic world of retail, and to top it off the weather was on form. We headed out into the Lake District National Park, leaving the car at Patterdale and headed up the Grizedale Valley, on a recommendation from our good friends Ruth and Richard Irons.

At the head of the Grizedale Valley with Nethermost Pike, Eagle Crag and Dollywagon Pike behind.

The path on the east of the valley is suitable for a Mountain Buggy so we pushed Phoebe along until it started to narrow and ascend to Grizedale Tarn. However we were treated to some spectacular views of the Helvellyn massif; for the entirety of the walk we were in a natural amphitheater with St Sunday Crag, Dollywagon Pike, High Crag, High and Low Spying How and Bleaberry Crags towering overhead with their snow capped tops glistening in the sun.

More pictures of this walk and many other walks in January can be found here.

Good lines, stay safe and see you on the wet stuff...
