Striding Edge....pt2


The forecast for Tuesday was for a clear day, and this was perfect. I decided to go back up to the ridge and retrace my route from the previous day again with the Fuji 617. I left the Nikon behind this time and took the Ricoh GRD2 for the record shots. It was one of those glorious mountain days that you wish would never end. The air was like crystal and the sun was warm, although the temperature was -3 down in Glenridding and rather less 3000' up. How different 24 hours can be! I have a soft spot for Helvellyn. It was the first 'proper' mountain I climbed with a few mates over 40 years ago. I am always reminded of that time when I visit Helvellyn. We have all remained friends. A great mountain with great memories for me.
