Aurora Borealis

On Sunday afternoon I was watching alerts come through in the AuroraWatch UK app that I write for iPhone and iPad. Yellow, Amber, and then Red, a very high red.

I looked outside and realised that we had pretty clear sky, and a good forecast for the evening.

So I headed out once it was dark!

Waking up to Snow at Red Tarn

Having parked on Wrynose Pass late on Friday afternoon, I walked the short distance up to Red Tarn for a night wild camping.

It drizzled a little in the evening once I had pitched the tent, but in-between the mist, I was treated to some lovely views of the moon.

When I woke up I shook the tent to clear it before stepping outside to see this…

Wetherlam Walk

I was up early on Saturday and drove to Tilberthwaite to walk up Wetherlam in the Lake District.

A damp drizzly morning from the outset, it was nice that that the rain eased for a short while for the scramble up Wetherlam Edge. I was however up in the cloud from around two thirds of the way up.

I have really noticed a change in both the air and the morning light this week. Spring does feel to be in the air.

Getting out for regular early morning walks throughout the year allows me to see the changing seasons and some amazing views.
