Grasmere Trip Day 2

Rydel Water & Loughrigg Fell 6th June 2015

After a “not so good nights sleep” in Grasmere Youth Hostel we set off to walk round Rydel Water and to climb Loughrigg an easy ¬†walk before we head home at lunch time, a total distance of 10.5km (6.5 miles) The hardest bit of the walk was battling the high wind on the top of Loughrigg – it was difficult in places not to be blown off you feet
