Howgills round 2 !

Well after the battering I received in the Howgills I decided that it was only fair to have another go in better weather.

The Howgills aren't the most picturesque hills in the world but it was good stamina training. It has just made me more hungry toget back to lakes and edge closer to the halfway point on my Wainwrights.

The walk on the whole was fairly uneventful apart from the few river crossing we had to do, I must admit it was funny watching Jim dance across the slippy rocks only to receive soggy boots as a reward. I wish i had recorded it.....darn !
Jim trying to dry off........Imagine coming round a corner to find that blocking your path......scary!

I have dampness in my Howgills !

Well it started soggy and just got soggier ! This was my first walk with mountain man senior for almost 2 months. It was probably the worst day we have had :P But like true mountain men we continued and tried to ignore the constant rain.

This was one of the best views of the day. We spent a lot of time being hammered by wind and shrouded in low cloud. It was good to get some bad weather experience though. I quite enjoyed it really.

Its the wind blowing my poles !

It's blown Jim's wig clean off !

Clinging to the trig point on the calf for dear life :P

Dunstanburgh Castle

A nice little walk up the coast resulting in a nice pic !
