Fair Snape Fell

An unusual Friday walk, to take advantage of better weather than was predicted for the Saturday and a return to the fells of Fiendsdale to finish off the route I began a few weeks ago. Right from the off I knew I would have no views today, with low cloud and mist covering all the tops and the air so heavy and muggy there was little chance of it clearing. I had a fine day though, completely alone on the tops apart from the various birds and sheep drifting in and out of the clag. Still quite boggy on top, but the cotton grass is in profusion and I was sorry to descend to the car again.
