Lake District May 3.1

This is the first phone signal since Wednesday lunch time. I had done some interim posts but they will take too long to send. I won’t do a picture either as the signal is too weak.

The story so far. After lunch on Robinson, Jeff and I went to Dale Head is worsening conditions. Low cloud and rain threatening. After a cup of tea at the Honister cafe, we decided Haystacks might be challenging in the mist and it wouldn’t be fun to camp in the clouds. Plan B was to head to Langstrath to camp. Great camp below Eagle Crag.

On Thursday Jeff went back to Keswick. I had a lovely wander up Langstrath to Angle Tarn. Stunningly beautiful. Hill fog cleared late afternoon.

Early morning today was very misty and didn’t clear until 11. Having lunch at Pike o Stickle heading over to Codale. Now sunny and quite hot.

I’ve got lots of photos and will do a trip report when I get back.
