Looking back along the path with a view down to Loweswater and Crummock Water. Unfortunately I can't remember what the three fells over there are called.
Just after taking this picture I passed a couple walking in the opposite direction. I said hello, they said hello, he commented on how little snow there was here and after we'd talked for a few minutes he asked if this was the right path to get to Mellbreak. "not really" I said "that's it over there". "so you can't get to Mellbreak from here then" "well, yes, you can get there from here, , , " "I told you" he said to her. ", , , but, given the time of day, the time of year and the weather, you really needed to park somewhere past far end of Loweswater if you were heading up there, , , " "I told you" she said to him. "I don't think we've got enough time now but thanks for helping out anyway". (time for me to leave them alone)
As I walked away they started a heated "I told you" argument. I could hear every word, most of which can't be typed on this website. With a little bit of imagination I'm sure you can guess what they were.
