This was Louis' first lakeland mountain, Blencathra is a big peak for young people with much smaller legs. Our day out started in excellent conditions from the Mill Inn at Mungrisedale.

Just before we were setting off we had an ice cream as cold as glistening snow.
When we where setting off we saw a horse with a spotty and polka dotted coat.
We saw mist covering the hills and mountains it was beautiful.
We saw some sheep being rounded up by the sheep dog, they performed a line of sheep.
We had a little break at the hole in the wall.
Here's a picture of Helvellyn striding edge is on the left of the picture and on the right is Swirrel edge. To get to the top of Helvellyn we had to kick our feet in the snow and dig our stick in the snow to use as hand holds.
We looked at striding edge and this is what we saw.
Sitting down waiting for slow daddy.

While we were eating our scrumptious lunch we were looking at the path where someone had been skiing it was nearly a vertical drop!
This is where we were eating our lunch.
These is my favourite views from the walk.
