The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

Howgills from Wild Boar Fell

Just having elevenses (at 10.25) on top of Wild Boar Fell, with the sun beating down, hardly a breath of wind, and skylarks tweeting all around.

The views are fine in every direction, but for this snap I've chosen to go in the direction of the Howgills again.

Quality of the snap is probably appalling - phone cameras have moved on a long way since this long-obsolete model of Blackberry was launched - but hopefully it gives some vague representation of the views.

  1. Always fancied a day out in the Howgills on the way down to the Lakes as it's not that far. Driven past them many times.

    1. Likewise, we'd driven past the Howgills so many times that it was becoming nothing short of negligent that we'd never ventured into them. The area is now on the 'must go back' list.
