Well we have been on a few really good walks lately, some of the photos are just stunning, but I can't show all of them to you as there are too many!
On Christmas day we decided to just go up Latrigg but the day was superb with bright sunshine and the crampons we bought last year came in very handy. So here are a few of the shots. This first one shows Bella decked out in her tinsel, much to her annoyance. She really did not like it much, but she met another terrier on the top who was just the same and they had a sniff at each other as if to say 'So they are making fools of both of us'.
This is looking back towards Clough Head as we make our way up the narrow lane at the back of Latrigg through the gorse bushes to the top.
Getting nearer the top of Latrigg. There were stunning views on the top and we sat and had a quick cup of tea before descending homewards again. Our route was straight over and down the steep bit on the other side towards Spooney Green Lane.
Pete was glad of his crampons because Spooney Green Lane was very icy indeed. Once or twice Bella slipped onto her back....Lucky she had the coat on to keep her warm too.
We ventured out on New Year's Day, but again because it was so snowy we decided to keep it local and just went up Walla Crag and down Cat Gyll. After the view from the top we went through the stile and found a trio of snowmen, Pete picked Bella up for the photo and balanced her on one of them but she was not too happy at first. It took quite a lot of coaxing from me before she posed for the shot.
You can see that she is hanging onto that snowman's head.
Bella and I making our way down by the wall towards Cat Gyll which was very slippery too.
I have some more photos to show you tomorrow of our walk on Thursday in very deep snow sometimes over the knees on Dob Gill towards Watendlath via Shivery Knott.
