Sunday 11/20/11 was forecast to be the only dry Sunny day for a long time & so we made a late decision to do a long hike! We didn't leave Multnomah Falls until 10:15 & began the 7 mile hike up to Larch Mountain. We started seeing snow after 2 miles & by 3.5 miles the trail was completely snow covered. We had hoped to reach the top in 3 hours but the snow slowed our progress & it was 1:45pm by the time we reached Sherrard Point. The views were fantastic though & it was well worth the effort to get there! After lunch & some hot tea in the clear crisp 32F air we packed up & headed for home getting back to Multnomah at 4:30pm before it got dark & more importantly before the coffee shack closed :^)..

Friday October 29th Tim & I set off to climb Sca Fell Pike via Bow Fell & Esk Pike. We set off from the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel in Langdale at 8:45 and made our way up towards Bowfell by way of the Climbers Traverse & the Great Slab. We then went on to Esk Pike & finally Sca Fell Pike by way of Esk Hause. We came back by way of Angie Tarn, Rosset Gill & Mickledon Beck.
Ingleton Falls Trail. This has the reputation of being one of the best waterfall trails in England. On the down side it's on provate land & it's not a public footpath with a right of way which means it's one of the very few places in the UK where you have to pay to walk :^(...

Hermon Bungalow. Its a bit bigger now than it was back then, there is a extension on the back & a lovely conservatory on the front. When we lived there all cooking was done on an Aga Stove, Lighting was from calor gas lamps, there was no electricity & the water supply was a spring behind the house.
