Late afternoon “Golden Hour” hike for exercise after the frustrations of work setting up my project here, with only time for a quick raid up Latrigg, a walk out from Keswick. Latrigg is a minor peak compared to Skiddaw (931 m.) immediately behind which dwarfs it, but the views from Latrigg are always rewarding. The sun set behind Grisedale Pike (791 m.) and its shadow climbed up the fells behind me as I hiked home.
Sporty circular walk out to Barnes Bridge and round the Thames path on the Surrey bank, passing around Hammersmith Bridge (which is closed, even to pedestrians or river traffic) and back home via Putney Bridge. I did this today as a training walk, so a couple of litres of water as weight in my rucksac, walking fast and with as few stops as possible.
The skies, shapes and notoriously sticky South Downs mud from my hike to and around Castle Hill Nature Reserve in the South Downs National Park in Sussex. A day hike out from my support bubble mate’s home. I’ve been thinking of doing a set about Mud for a while and this day out provided an opportunity.
