With a gap in the weather, it was only right to head back north for a few days' walking. Thursday dawned wet and windy ... possibly not good for walking. However, after a late start and an early lunch (sat in the car with the wind lashing the rain against the soft-top), the sun suddenly came out and the snow-capped mountains became visible - and inviting.

With British Summer Time over, there was an hour less in which to complete a walk in daylight and so there was only enough time to cover just the two Wainwrights. Few people were out on such a lovely day - I had the snow cover all to myself. Despite the wind, which blew the hail and snow with such force that it stung, the views from the summits were amazing!
