High Street ,The Rigg & Harter Fell ,From a very Icy Mardale Road ,It was a simple case of taking real care driving down, any surface water had frozen over the night on the road making it for difficult driving conditions so much so that even the slush had frozen in the middle of the road hitting the bottom of the car as I drove over ,I half expected the car park to be empty but true to traditions I was wrong !

Lunch time & its so peaceful on the summit ,I dug in here to have lunch ,every time I’m up here I always eat here id gone unnoticed all the time I was here, just sat there watching the world go by completely unnoticed ,This picture looking towards the summit Trig Point .


 
 

Reflections on Blea Water

 

Back at path which will lead me back to the car park
 

 

Two reasons why this walk was so special to me ,One it was my first ever lone walk & two, It was High Street my favourite Fell in the Lake District .
