About this picture

Setting off just before dawn, we hiked the short 1km trail up to the top of Raven Crag, which overlooks the length of Thirlmere. It was one of those bitingly cold winter mornings, but the moment the sun came up over the Helvellyn range, all discomforts are forgotten as you realise the beauty of the world.

Where to sleep nearby ?
