Three bloggers find wild camping perfection

by backpackingbongos

“What do you think the temperature is?” asked Martin.  I checked the thermometer on my watch which had been left inside my tent, it was 3 degrees celsius.  The sun had not even dipped below the horizon and it was the second week in June.  So much for summer!

I had met up with Martin from Summit and Valley and Terry from terrybnd for a backpack around Wildboar Fell and the Howgills.  We were standing outside our tents high up on a shelf that cradles Sand Tarn, just below the summit of Wild Boar Fell.  The sun was sinking behind the Lake District, putting on a display that seemed to be designed just for us.  It was a perfect moment shared by great company.

A proper write-up will follow when I finally get round to finishing my TGO challenge posts.

Cheers guys for a cracking weekend.
