Monday 19th March (a.m.) 2007
A short walk before we headed down to Keswick for the 'compulsory' visit to the Bank Tavern for lunch. It had snowed the day before and there was a bitterly cold and strong wind blowing so I was glad we weren't heading up high. The cold air and snow on the higher fells made for some fantastic views that kept us on the top of Latrigg for quite a while.
