Lake District Tour...
The last Lake District tour was a great success. Intrepid hikers from beginners to experienced all enjoyed the variety of treks on offer, and all arrived back safely. Except us! Yes, we got lost and were the last to arrive at the Boar Inn. We'll never live it down! I think everyone had a trip to remember, especially 'The Big Blow' that rendered everyone's tents into kites. What fun that was! Thanks to all who came along. The next Lake District trip details in the quartely itinarary.
One of the favorite walks was this 2 miler from Wasdale to Buckbarrow. Especially in the peak season, when there are maybe to many vistors in the most popular areas, this walk is delightfully off the beaten track, and away from the crowds. Most are heading for Scafell, leaving you to enjoy Buckbarrow in relative peace and quite. You can stroll up the gentle hill and the peak offers superb views of one of Britains deepest lakes and highest mountains. Although we've been many times I never cease to enjoy this track as one of my favorites every time we do the Tour.
Best wishes, Steve and Sara.
