Awesome, Dave, truly awesome.  8)

Some of those colours took my breath away.  That campsite at Great Langdale (you know, the one hidden in the trees), is that the one WG is on about us staying at?  Just look at that view.

I have to say, what I like about your photo journals is that you make us feel as though we're there with you, on your shoulder as it where.  In some of these pics for this walk, you can almost taste the grass and feel the drizzle. Fantastic.

Thanks  ;)

Actually, I've been meaning to ask: what's the ODG as compared to the NDG? I have no idea!  ???
