Along Grasmere

Along Grasmere

This meadow is maybe 7/8s of the way around the Grasmere-Rydal Water loop, and what I remember vividly is how tired I was by this point. We had to hike down a side path and climb back up to the road (we were off the end of the path and back on roads by then) and at the time I was not sure it had been worth the side-trip. Of course, now, looking at the image, I can say it was worth it.

(As an aside…it was at the end of this circuit that I discovered Apple/Melon J2O for the first time…)
