Sour Howes and Sallows

We picked a fairly short walk to do after driving up from Birmingham that morning.

Difficulty: 3
Walkers: Tim, Caroline
14:10, 0.0km 0h00 0m, Start (142)
15:21, 2.7km 1h11 347m, Sour Howes (483)
15:45, 4.3km 1h35 410m, Sallows (516)
16:54, 8.5km 2h44 422m, End (142)

The parking spot wasn't too far out of the route in from Windermere to the Drunken Duck, and the route fairly obvious to start with.

I love the view on your first walk of the trip when you start to climb up and get enough height to start seeing across the valleys.

The view back looking to Windermere.

Caroline at the top of Sour Howes.

Looking to the north, with the dimple in the middle being Troutbeck Tongue and Caudale Moor opposite and Thornthwaite Crag on the right.

 The view from Sallows, looking more towards the west, with Wansfell now in view.

Another shot from the top of Sallows, with Caroline taking more pictures.

The route back down, seeing a number of cyclists brave the stony path.
