Ullswater in spring | Glenridding towards HelvellynWednesday, April 13, 2016
The bluest of skies was an unexpected joy on our weekend away in Cumbria mid March. Who would dare hope for such a glorious day? I naturally assumed that it would still be freezing cold up on the hillside so wore a jumper and packed a coat in my rucksack but had to take the jumper off after a short while and roll up the sleeves of my blouse.
C had planned a route from the village of Glenridding at the very edge of Ullswater up towards Helvellyn. The route we walked was easy going, although up and downhill. At the highest point we ventured up, round the corner to marvel at the view of the snow-capped mountains.
walk to Long Meg stone circle.
