Guided Coast to Coast Day 4


Another day going up and down Lakeland vallies with fantastic mountain scenery around. Grasmere is a bit too posh for the Lakes and it feels good to walk out and climb to another pass. 

At the top there is a treat with Grisdale Tarn, a nice spot for a brew or a bite to eat. 

Wainwright describes the transition down Grisdale as going from "savage desolation to pastoral loveliness." This comes at the end of an epic sentence that fills a quarter of a page. He had a tendency to purple prose and I expect he had a thesaurus handy at all times.
