Lake District...Outlying Fells

SE Lakeland:  Wainwrights Outlying Fells

School Knott which overlooks Windermere was our objective today but wanting a bit longer walk we decided to walk it from Ashes Lane near the Plumgarth roundabout and to use part of the Dales Way.

Distance:   12 miles        Ascent:    1705 feet     Time:   5h 30m

Come on, Dave, let's talk mist ..

You've made some slurring comments about mist on this walk, and I just have to say something .. surely you don't believe that mist detracts from the beauty of a walk?  I feel that mist, and overall drowdiness (is that a word, if not, it should be) of weather adds to the feeling of being lost in hills and woodlands.

Granted, I accept, it makes taking pictures a little more difficult but the results of some make them more worthwhile.  I love walking in mist, especially when it's open countryside.

But thanks again for another fine report.  Sir, you make me ache for the Lakes!

Mr B,
Nothing, absolutely nothing distracts from the beauty of a walk. My comments re mist apply only to the restrictive views it gave. I will agree that in some circumstances the mist can actually enhance the photography but when your looking for a shot in the distance that doesn't apply.
Thanks for your comments though, they are much appreciated.
