The boys decided not to go up Seat Sandal as it looked too steep so they walked around the Tarn while I went to the top. Yes it was steep, but still quite easy. So boys ARE wimps! Good view from the summit of the path up Dollywagon Pike.

Path up Fairfield that I walked a few weeks ago. No view to Ullswater today, too hazy..
