Here I am: In homage of tarns

Angle Tarn walk bootsHere I am. At Angle Tarn. 567 metres above sea level. Sitting down and taking in the view, after quite a trek.

Angle TarnA tarn or mountain lake. In the Lake District. Dating back to the Ice Age.

extreme crocheting Angle Tarn walkThe whole walk was 6.5 miles long. Some parts were steep. In other parts, we were thankful that people had made a stony path. Especially where the trail follows the edge of the range.

We took a few breaks on the way round. A chance to rest and re-energize (and maybe squeeze in a bit of crocheting – there is always time to craft, right?) before continuing the journey.

Not that the Tarn was the only water source. We passed a man-made reservoir lower down. Interesting contrast to the Tarn.

ode to a tarnMiddle TimeToCraft was even inspired to write a poem.

Angle Tarn walk 2015The rain held off till we reached the car, but it was windy (see Pup sporting a new windswept look). And by the end, we all felt epic. The children are now determined to find more tarns. I think I’ll join them.
