High Rigg

After the long day before, we took it easy, setting off after lunch for a short walk, and not aiming to go too high given the forecast.  Well, the idea was that it was quite short, but these things are relative, and by the end of the walk it didn't feel too short...  High Rigg was one of the Wainwrights that it's hard to do as a joint walk with others, so fitted the bill as a single point destination.

Difficulty: 3
Walkers: Tim, Caroline, Grace (13), Evie (10), Poppy (7)
14:36, 0.0km 0h00 0m, Start (173)
16:13, 4.3km 1h37 254m, High Rigg (357, Wainwright)
18:19, 10.2km 3h43 392m, End (173)

We parked at the very small car park just off the main road, walking up the main road and then straight up the hillside to the peak, before coming down off the far end and walking around back to the car.

The path up to the top had it's obstacles to overcome.

Looking back south down the valley.

Similar view a little later, this time seeing Thirlmere to the right. 

Poppy at High Rigg, 

Back down the far end, around the corner, and heading back home.  Grace out in front, other various children in various states of disagreement and arguing.

Same point, looking north east, vaguely towards Troutbeck.  On a clear day I'm sure you can see Blencathra from here, but not today...
