Our Christmas Hike this year was to Silver How (395 m) near Grasmere. The weather remained dry and cold throughout with icy patches in some places. Whilst starting positively, later on there was some mist and low cloud which, disappointingly, rather circumscribed the view.
The minibus was parked at Grasmere from where we proceeded via Kelbarrow and Megs Gill to the summit. Lunch was taken in the lee of Silver How following which we descended via Brigstone Moss and Wray Gill to Allan Bank and into Grasmere and the shops. This concluded a rather pleasant and not too tiring excursion.
Thanks to Chris, Harry, Liam & Alan for making the walk possible.
