A long distance view looking back into the Lake District. I have to say that the stile you can see in the picture has to be one of the steepest there is.
Between here and the top of Dent was a bit like one of those weird tales you hear about someone having the same dream every night. I passed no less than four groups of people, all of which asked exactly the same thing; "are we on the right path". As sarcastic as it may sound, there's only one possible answer to this, "it depends where you're going". "But, if you're on the coast to coast and you're going to Ennerdale it's, , , , , " and I explained to them which way to go. After I'd pointed them in the right direction, each group then asked "how many days did it take you". I then had to explain that I wasn't on the coast to coast and I was just out for an afternoon walk in the area.
On the way down to Black How I met a guy who I exchanged a hello with. Unsurprisingly I almost followed my hello with "Ennerdale is that way and before you ask, no I'm not on the coast to coast".
