From Elterwater we visited Skelwith and Colwith Force before moving on to the old quarries of Hodge Close and Cathedral cavern. Returning to Elterwater via Slaters Bridge and Little Langdale. All in all our route was about 9 miles or thereabouts, so a proper leg stretch.
With lots of water in the rivers and carpets of colour in the meadows and on the fells, it certainly has been a delight to enjoy this walk today. And with plenty of cloud shrouding the mountains, I'm confident we made the right decision to stay in the valleys rather than endure a high mountain walk.
Big thanks to Claire and John for great company and so many interesting stories.
