Family Fun: A Frosty Hike Up Loughrigg

I just love living on the doorstep of one of the most beautiful corners of the United Kingdom. On a day like today when the sun shone, the sky was blue and the temperature never got above 5C it was a marvellous place for a hike. We wrapped up warm with plenty of layers, tied up the hiking boots, grabbed the walking poles and headed off to Rydal Water, Loughrigg Fell, Grasmere and the Rydal coffin trail:

Rydal Water

On our way we saw lots of beautiful things:

Icicles over waterfall

Grass that was completely white with frost

Frozen boot prints

Wonderful reddish brown hills

Cairns and cols

Frozen grass on the edge of a stream

Cairns as viewpoints
Then it was time to descend to Grasmere:

Grasmere with the village behind

Carefully down the frosty path

Scary steep stone pathway

The tranquility of Grasmere
