English Lake District,NW England on 12th Feb 2011. We’d gone to Borrowdale and intened to walk up from Seathwaite to Styhead Tarn and on to Sprinkling Tarn.When we got there the valley was clouded out and so we headed up to Honister Hause and had a nice easy amble to the plateau between Fleetwith Pike and Haystacks.The latter was somewhere we hadn’t been for years but looked a bit gloomy and threatening,so we popped up th the summit of Fleetwith Pike,which is somewhere in 30 years of fell walking,we had never been.So instead of Sprinkling and Styhead Tarns,we got this Tarn..Tarn the Patterdale Terrier on the summit,one of many she has climbed.
This was a special occasion for us,as it was the first high level walk I’d managed since I’d broken my arm in Jan 2010 and the last walk just before then had been to the High Stile range,seen looming to the left of Buttermere (the lake) below.
Beyond Buttermere you can see Crummock Water (in 2 parts) and peeking around the corner of Mellbreak (the fell to the left of Crummock Water) is Loweswater.
