Last days of ‘winter’

A glorious weekend in the Lake District as the last few days of the meteorological winter draw to a close. Today Steph, Seren and I went for a leisurely run around the Kentmere Horseshoe. Compared to the central tops of Helvellyn and surrounding peaks and the higher areas around Scafell Pike, there is very little snow cover elsewhere and the Eastern fells around Kentmere are no exception – just a few isolated patches of snow, but the ground is well frozen.
