21st Feb. 04 - Loughrigg Fell and Rydal Water

Yet another brilliant day. Bright sun and cold!
As it was the last day, we did an "old favourite". Over Loughrigg Fell to Loughrigg Tarn, along Loughrigg Terrace and its views of Grasmere and Rydal water before taking the path alongside the River Rothay back to Ambleside. About 6 miles.
