Up along Gunnerside Beck
Anyway despite sore feet, a thoroughly pleasant day, I really like the area around Gunnerside Beck.
So does the snow apparently (like the area around Gunnerside Beck that is), it doesn't want to leave!
These ridges/drifts/banks of snow can be found on route up the sides of the little dale onto Melbecks Moor via the hushes, easily 8-10ft deep. . I went up Friarfold Hush this time. Me leg muscles are still aching, from either digging, pressing and testing steps in the snow, or from having to haul the complete said legs out of snow nether region deep, hopefully with the boot still attached. And I walked right at the very edge of this lot!
Hard work, or even a hard workout, but I feel I am learning all the time.
Tomorrow me n himself are off to Holy Island. I'm really looking forward to that.
