High Pike Friday 20th September 2019

This wasn't the walk we planned on doing today but despite our early start we still arrived at what we thought was the corrcet parking area for our planned walk only to find it full. Option two was also abandoned for the same reason, so in the end we opted for a drive out to the base of Carrock Fell where we knew we were unlikley to find every parking spot taken up. Having said that by the time we arrived there were plenty of campervans parked up with table and chairs out next to them with their owners sat enjoying a drink and the view.
