A Hike up Helvellyn
The Lake District
The hike starts in this valley
which looks like a dream
We walk the first 100m incline
way too fast so we catch our
breath to this view
The weather is sunny and still

This means we can walk up
Striding Edge, the most
challenging ascent

There are shambley rocks and
steep drops on either side

At the top my calves are
burning and my heart is

There is a little bit of
adrenaline from the thrill of
being so high
, ,
the summit
We climb down Swirrel Edge then
eat brie and grape butties while
our feet are cooling in the tarn
Time for a quick beer by the lake
before the 90min drive home
