12th August 07 - Lingmoor
Overcast again. But we headed for Elterwater and
the start of our Lingmoor none the less. It was fine to begin with but poured
with rain on the descent.
At 1400ft the walk is not that tough. But the long walk back makes it over 8 miles which began to be a bit wearisome.
Fantastic views though.

down with this magnificent view up the Langdales.
Then the long trudge back - albeit with wonderful views all the way!
