29th April Seniors Hike

It might be raining this week but this was the scene a week last Tuesday on what was so far the best day of the Spring.  It was just so warm and beautiful and the Langdale Pikes looked superb.   We had the very pleasant duty of escorting a group of senior hikers from Somerset for three days and this was day two when we took them to Loughrigg Tarn.  I am amazed that I was able to take this photograph with out any of them in it because a total of 28 came with us.....I had to shepherd them all behind me for this shot.

If you have a large group of hikers who need a bespoke few days in the Lakes then contact us for our rates which are very competitive. You won't be disappointed, the group from Somerset were very pleased and we chose careful routes for them because, well they were seniors.
