Borrowdale. 11-12 July 2020
Our first overnight trip to the Lakes after the quarantine. We climbed Glaramara and camped near a little tarn by Allen Crags. There were surprisingly many wild campers - we counted no less than 15 tents by Sprinkling Tarn.
Lake District in the evening.
Borrowdale: Derwent water and Keswick on the other side of the lake.
A path along the Glaramara ridge.
Dumfries and Galloway on the other side of Solway Firth.
Here we left the path to look for a camping spot.
Little tarn by our camping spot, we are hidden away from everybody.
A view from Great Gable. We are looking at Sprinkling Tarn, where we saw lots of tents yesterday night.
We climbed down a steep scree.
A lunch by the waterfall.
Looking back at Great Gable. Our descent is shown with a red line.
We are walking towards Broad Crag along Piers Gill.
Patches of linchen formed a picture of a little bird.
Many rocks here are covered with bright linchen (map linchen - Rhizocarpon geographicum).
Returning to Seathwaite.
This was a great trip after a long break. Even though we know this area very well, we find something new every time.
