One of those days with multiple work deadlines but too gorgeous not to! I really wanted for us to do the Beda – Place Fell round but ran out of time, so settled for just Beda Fell.
A blistering hot day, the sling and rucksack made for hot work as we clambered steeply upwards through a thick bracken little trod footpath. One on the ridge line life got easier.
Looking over Ullswater and back at Hallin Fell, the views are stunning as soon as you have climbed a short distance up. Even the sheep like taking them in!
it took longer than I anticipated to get to the summit, and despite the heat was a bit breezy on the very top, so we dropped a bit for lunch.
The colours at this time of years were gorgeous up here, all tiny little Fell plants that made a beautiful fellside.
Then time for the grassy descent down and walk back along the Martindale valley where Evie chilled out on the grass whilst I had a quick dip in the river to wash off and cool off!
