The good weather continues so Jennifer and I take advantage by heading out on the long walk across Skiddaw Forest to Bassenthwaite and then returning via Scarness, Dodd Wodd and Millbeck. This was a bit of an odd walk as far as the passes go because there was never going to be an ideal route through Skiddaw Forrest. Various different routes and combinations of routes pass through this area so I simply came up with what seemed like a good walking route that took us from one side to the other.
Despite the unconventional nature of the walk we ended up having a fantastic day. The first half of the walk was through the secluded area around the back of Skiddaw and the second half was through some lovely countryside. All of which was made even better by the almost perfect weather.
