How incredibly lucky I am to live in such a beautiful part of the world. It is very rare that we get to see the sun shining for more than a couple of days over the summer here in the lakes but when it does shine, I like to make the most of the weather and spend my days off exploring the countryside.
Coniston Old Man had been on my to do list for quite some time now and during my week off from work I got the perfect summer weather.
What I love so much about walking is the view from the summit. That feeling you get when you reach the top and you look across the landscape, you literally feel as though you are on top of the world.
