Old Man of Coniston

21°C white cloud and humid.

I hiked with MapMyRide+! Distance: 14.05km, time: 06:02:00, pace: 25:46min/km, speed: 2.33km/h.

The atmosphere dominated the day. Not today, those boring photos of blazing sun, blue sky and distant vistas. Clouds spilled over the mountain ridge like an overflowing dam.

I really like this photo, it sums up the day very well. In rthe distance is the summit of Old Man.

I met a guy who offered to take my photo and he turned out to be a good walking companion. Coincidentally he comes from the same home town as I. After a few hours, we teamed up with a Dutch couple who came out for a walk; er, without a map.

I got a QMD out of this which felt fine at the time but I felt my legs complaining this morning.
