Carrock Fell & High Pike 18th March 2012

We went out on Sunday to enjoy the lovely weather and to celebrate 4 years with Bella our little Border Terrier. Right now though I have no time to finish this posting, so I will come back and do it later, meanwhile you can look at the pictures. 

Ok I was ascending the hill in this first photo, if you look just beyond my head you can see the car parked on the verge. The views of fields were splendid.

This was near the top of Carrock with me looking across to distant Blencathra and on the right the back of Skiddaw with some snow still in evidence.

This was the view across from the summit towards High Pike.
Here we have Pete and Bella with Carrock's summit rocks behind.

On the way between the two hills it can be quite boggy and wet with many very small tarns, and this was one of them looking splendid with the blue sky reflected in the water.

This last photo is the summit of High Pike with the slate seat and summit cairn. I was just having a slurp of well deserved tea after having taken a call on the mob which turned out to be longer than expected.  Somehow I still hate answering calls when out on a fell, but the new bookings system for the KR walks means I do need it on incase one of you dear readers is trying to book a walk. So now you know you can get a good signal on the top of High Pike.
