Lovely photos of some old friends and some hills still to explore.  O0
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

A nice TR with superb pics  O0


I didn't know the shelter on Selside Pike was an ancient cairn, the things you learn :)

Great report - these fells are on my "must be revisited when there is more than 50m visibility" list - so its nice to know what to expect!
