I’ve been rained on every time I’ve gone hiking this year, so I was expecting more of the same when I planned a weekend of pre-Christmas walking in the Lake District. Remarkably enough, it not only turned out dry, but the sun came out as well – in fact we had a completely cloud free day. With around two feet of snow on higher ground, and a sprinkling even in the valleys, it made for the perfect winter walking. With the sun glistening off the snow contrasting against the bright blue of the sky, it made for absolutely stunning views from the top of the hills.
I’d even go as far as to say I’ve never seen England look so beautiful. Hopefully I’ll get another chance to go back before I leave for Mexico; it would be too much to expect to have another day like Saturday.
