W i n t e r // Freezing cold, iced grass, blue skies, low light. Winter can be beautiful too. I mean...just look at this scene. I took this in the Lakes when I was up there at Christmas. The last time we did this walk, Evelyn waded into the river as if in a trance and water flooded in over the top of her wellies! We had to abort the walk and I had to carry her all the way back to the car! It was much more successful at Christmas and we got to walk to the lovely Chesters Café and enjoyed mulled wine. Sometimes the simplest of days are the best aren’t they? Xx
A different post today. On Thursday my wife fell at the top of Stickle Ghyll and (we later confirmed) dislocated her shoulder. For years I have carried extra clothing, first aid kit, survival bag etc and never used it. Everything was used on this beautiful but freezing cold day - worth the years of extra pack weight. Totally impressed by the work of the Langdale Ambleside MRT and the Great North Air Ambulance who arrived from above and below. Very grateful for all of the help and care we received. Such impressive voluntary agencies. #langdale #lamrt #greatnorthairambulance #cumbria #lakedistrictnationalpark #winterwalking #hiking #beprepared
