High Crag view

As you can see, back in Cumbria again this week, except for Friday...

Oh good; I love Cumbria. What cracking view here; the dog seems more interested in what its owner is up to, though.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Alan, the climb is worth it. The dog wants to get going !

An excellent picture. Likey. When the picture first opened up, I thought for a moment there, that the young man brought his fishing rod along.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Louis, I see what you mean...smile
What a view, even with the low cloud. At least I can say I have been to the top of Great Gable, back in 1960. We have booked a few days away with a local coach company in August based in Keswick, it includes Ullswater on a lake steamer, something on our list of things to do, and a 'Mountain Goat' tour through Hardknott and Wrynose passes etc., Maureen doesn't feel like driving us all the way up to the lakes anymore so coaching is the next best thing.
Frank L Croston.: I've climbed it three times, but for different reasons only set out to do so once ! That sounds like a good holiday Brian, the Ullswater cruise is great, the trip over Hardknott and Wrynose will be exciting.
Great image, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Tom ,a memory of a great day.
there's a lot to look at in this picture Frank...the hiker and his dog gives scale to the valley... the and the smokey hills behind....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Peter, there certainly is a lot to look at from there.
A good series on the Lakes Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Michael, brought them back with me on a hard drive. I hope you've survived the storm !
