Winter Traumas

Mist I am sure prefers winter walking to summer. She does enjoy the snow (limited though it is) but also is completely unconcerned about a long muddy walk in the hills and valleys. This is a good job as one of the ‘tasks’ pre Christmas was to walk the Bracken Way, it might not mention it in the notes, but it can be a mite squelchy!

Swimming with Mist

The weather has been lovely this summer with some really hot days. Mist had a tendency to become a bit hot and bothered on long days on the fells (although it did not stop her going) but loved cooling down in the rivers and lakes.

Here are some photos from our local walk one summer’s evening.

My summer (so far) in pictures

Mist is now 6 and as energetic as ever. She has thickened a little in girth since her early days (probably due to stealing packed lunches on walks) and enjoys resting at any stops. However there is no sign of slowing, she still walks double any human (at least) on any given day. Loves it.

Its about time the master got his act together. After weeks and weeks of complaining that it was too wet/too misty/too muddy we at last got out on a proper walk.

Photos of my Summer

This summer has been good fun so far, it could have been better but as always there has been too much doing nothing. I also had a problem when these stupid vets made me sleepy and slipped on a lampshade around my head. Apparently I had a cut on my leg when I jumped a barbed wire fence but it seemed no problem to me. I was depressed about the lampshade, my master more depressed about how much it had cost him….why bother!

Latest photos of Mist

Its been a quiet few months for Mist, the summer promises to be busy though with trips to a variety of Scottish islands, the Coast to Coast with Debbie and the regular walking through Yorkshire and the Lake District. Here though are a few photos to keep you going!

A Day on the Langdales

Mainly there are good days on the fells, sometimes they can be disappointing but every now and again you enjoy a particularly special day. Myself and Mist enjoyed one last week in near perfect Autumn conditions.

We set off from Dungeon Ghyll, took on the Band and then returned via the Crinkles, a classic circuit but not overly strenuous (although the boulders on the Crinkles made for some awkward and slippy steps). However this is not about the walk itself (you can find more about that by clicking here) but really a display of photos that I was fortunate to take when the light was so good. Mist features in most of them. It is her blog but I have cheated and added a few where she is not in.

One further point to the day concerned the search for Jasper, the missing border collie. We walked on the Wednesday when Jasper had been missing for 3 days and kept a sharp eye out for him but I had suspected (knowing Mist pretty well) that he would probably stick close to where Adam, his pack leader, had last seen him, up near Broad Crag and not venture over far towards the Langdales.

I was absolutely delighted to see Adam reunited with Jasper on Wednesday night, great credit to Geoff Horky (I have shared navigation training days with him at the LDNP and he is a truly top performer) and of course the Wasdale MRT. It would be remiss of me not to include the link to their fund raising website. Well done to all and so pleased for Jasper and Adam.

Summer Days

Mist has enjoyed her summer and the excellent weather that we have had. Actually that is not true, she does not care about the weather and hot can be too hot! Here are some photos of her enjoying herself whilst out and about on her walks.

On route to Suilven

Hello…

Mist near Brunt Knott

…over the stile to start….

Spotted the deer

…I think there are some deer down there…

Resting lochside

…but I am starting to get hungry…

Mist checking out the sandwiches

…very hungry…

This way

…wrong, it must be this way, not his way…

Thruscross from the moors

…I can never see in the bracken..

Hot work on Wansfell

….but a final rest will help and maybe look at the scenery (well that’s what they do)

Enough of Summer, Autumn now and those lovely wet and muddy days.
