Hard Knott

Friday was the best day weather-wise of this trip to the Lakes and so we decided to climb another Wainwright and do some tarn bagging at the same time. This was great as you can see from these pictures.

The last tarn (one of the Hard Knott Tarns) was described by H H Symonds in the 1930s: "Catch all this over the water of a peat tarn, with a margin of red grasses nodding and fluttering in the sunshine, and you will not praise any unknown top more highly: in the places where man's foot seldom goes, beauty dwells none the less". And to think we nearly missed it!
