Fantastic to see the views!

When travelling back home from Lakes, the evening sunshine always makes these appear to be like huge sand dunes! Well that's what they've become known!


Glad that you enjoyed them. Yes, going through the Tebay Gorge is always the high point of a journey up the M6. I'm always struck by the contrast between the hills on the different sides of the valley.

Tess helped me a lot - she was pulling like a train this morning.

You need all the help you can get in those hills  :)

Thanks vghikers. Tess can be a real help on the steady climbs, but an absolute pain coming downhill, a positive menace on really steep descents - I let her off the lead for a short while yesterday coming down the steep (!) eastern ridge of Bannisdale Crags, it was the safe thing to do. No sheep around, and she was back on the lead pronto once the gradient eased.
