Well I certainly didn't expect to be photographing this so early in the day. We had intended to set out from Darling How Farm, which would have meant getting here somewhere around midday. Unfortunately, when we arrived there the place was rapidly filling up with cars and people. It turned out that they were holding the 35th Malcolm Wilson rally and the forest tracks were closed.
Never mind; the plans may have been changed, but they weren't ruined. We left one car where it was, and drove around to Wythop. This would allow us to walk six of the original seven fells we'd planned to visit, without the need to use the forest tracks.
