The best weather for months and still lots of lying snow on the tops. The deep freeze meant all the bogs were frozen, except for the last section in the valley which was patchy. Some excellent views today, especially of the Howgills and over to Cross Fell. Superb day, crowned by sunbathing in the snow on Wild Boar Fell during lunch. Best walk since Skye last year!
