I passed through kentmere , hay bale's were standing in a field , wrapped in black plastic , food for the sheep in the surrounding fells ready for winter . cool winds , light snow in fields , was a reminder that winter is on its way
Soon we reached sallows , another compass bearing was taken to lead me to garburn nook
From there it was straight forward, following the path that skirts around buck crag , to lead up to yoke . from the summit , I headed for rainsborrow tarn , once again on a compass bearing - due to poor visabilty. a fence line was reached which I hand railed to get to the tarn . once located I searched for a pitch , with sunset fast approaching , and after the exertions of the day , I found a spot that 'would have to do ' . I settled in for the night , then it started snowing - I didn't stop till around 8 am the following morning !
dinner was cooked , plenty of hot beverages were consumed , then I started on the whisky toasting the mountain's and going over the days walking in my head , as I always do .
That night was spent , removing snow from the trialstar , it was snowing hard , and I was concerned about it building up on the trailstar .
The plan was for a 3day trip , 2 nights wildcamping . I went over the next days route , I planned on camping somewhere around tarn crag / harrop pike .
later that night , there was a brief lull , so I took the opportunity to answer a call of nature , and to take some pics .
