According to the BBC Monthly outlook, there is reason for hope! Better hiking conditions appear to be on the way for the second half of August (fingers crossed), a much-needed change as right now it’s muddy underfoot and wet weather gear is becoming standard daily kit! Other forecasts vary in their views, but there is good agreement that we can expect something drier and warmer to end the summer months.
Every cloud has a silver lining, of course, and currently the Lakeland waterfalls are at their most impressive, the lakes brimming, and the streams thundering down off the hills, all adding to a ‘wilder’ atmosphere.
Keep On Walking!
There have been many days when I’ve looked out on a rainy scene and been tempted to swap my planned walk for a second coffee, but there have been (almost?) NO days when, having been for a watery walk, I haven’t returned feeling glad I did it.
