Lake District: Stickle Pike and a Tover Common walk
7 November 2014
A long weekend in the Lake District with Lottie and George started
dull with low cloud. We went for a walk up Stickle Pike and some of the
other Dunnerdale Fells.

first climbed Stickle Pike.

I see Tupperware in them there hills
On Tarn Hill
This morning's walk was 4.9km and 260m of ascent in 1 hour 18
Later in the day I left the dogs to dry out and rest, and went for a bit
more geocaching on Torver Common, first along Coniston Water
and then, crossing the A5084 climbing onto the oddly named Torver Low
This pleasant body of water is called "Reservoir (disused)" on my
Ordnance Survey map, but Openstreetmap gives it the more evocative name
"Throng Moss Reservoir"
This afternoon's walk was also 4.9km with 158m of ascent in 1
hour 38 mins
