Had a wee wander out this morning with just Mario & Ruby the Pom,we covered just over 15 miles today,weather was great albeit very windy from around the 2000ft mark up the fell..as we climbed above the forest the visibility etc was great..

From there we trudged onwards & upwards towards the peaks ahead which seemed to never get any closer!! As we climbed higher the underfoot conditions changed to hard & unforgiving due to the frozen ground & also the ice covered rocks we had to clamber over at times..

On our final push towards the summit the skies were blue,not a cloud in sight & i was able to get one or two decent pics of the dogs although today i just took a 50 year old manual focus lens of only 55mm so just pretty close range stuff really.

As we crested the summit we were greeted by a frozen winterland & the only creatures we encountered up there were the hardy Herdwick's..

To say the wind up there was chilly would be an understatement! It literally cut you in half & must of been at least 40mph at the least,dogs were unfazed anyways & i was fairly well wrapped up for the day..

This was quite a hairy moment which at first i thought was funny which is why i took the pic,Ruby stepped on some sheet ice & started sliding but after going some 20ft i realised she was struggling but thankfully she scrambled to the side & to safety,i found out that another 6ft and she would of fell some 400ft down a sheer drop into the rocks & scree below almost certainly to her death,if it was me id not be writing this or anything ever again that's a fact..

As we started to make our descent underfoot conditions began to improve,the only dangerous bits were where the sun hadn't got onto the frozen ice which was hidden in the shade of the surrounding fell tops..

And that was our day today,never seen a glimpse of any game but i never really expected to today,it was just a day out,slow trekking on the fells where i call home,cheers for taking the time to read this folks..Ciao 😉

The mountains I used to walk in s.wales weren't like yours up there.
You got proper mountains lol.
Mole mounds I had lol.
Sitting behind a rock with a cuppa out of the cold wind. spotting scope in hand can't beat it.

Without a doubt Baz had it been Mario he'd of been dead for sure..I hate that bloody ice bollox,I don't know why I go up the fells when it's about,last year over Kirkstone Pass I had to slide down about 40 yards of sheet ice on my arse lol,talk about needing clean underwear lol..

The young fella looks good, especially for filling the freezer, or the game dealers,   and the wee pom, imagine if you could put her heart into another running dog, 

A world beater,

Cheers Ian,young dog is still very immature I think he's going to need the summer on his back before I know exactly what I've been feeding? He's 18 months old on this upcoming Saturday & has had a fair quota of gear but the dog needs time imo..The Pom will be 11 in a few months but she's still as active as ever & from what I've read about Poms 10-11 years seems about as long as they last but we will just keep on marching & she will no doubt let me know when she's had enough,she's seen all matter of gear on the ground & ain't shy of having a chomp lol..Being honest I will miss having her around come the day she goes across the rainbow bridge to doggy heaven,will be like losing an arm as where I go she goes, that's just how we roll in life lol..& thanks everyone else for your kind posts & likes they are much appreciated 😉
