Lakes weekend

The forecast for this weekend was for an amazing high pressure system.
We didn't get a good start from work on Friday for a Scottish weekend so we headed over to the lakes. 
We were staying on Braithwaite campsite so we decided to do the Coledale round. 
From Sail looking across to Eel Crags. Not much snow. 
 Coming off Eel Crags before heading up on to Grasmoor.
More grey cloud pushing in and the temperature is dropping :)
 Looking back to Grasmoor from half way up Hopegill Head
 From Hopegill Head looking across to Grisedale Pike
 Very grey looking to the east
Unfortunately the light was very flat for photos. 
It was freezing all day, descending Grisedale Pike the cold easterly picked up a little and the temperature dropped even more :(. 
But A brilliant day out.
 Back to our VW camper van for tea and cake :)
The saturday night Sky was amazing  :)
Sunday was much brighter, we wanted to do a run so opted for a run around Derwent water perfect.
