Autumn Trip to the Lakes, Day 5 and 6

On the Sunday we had another walking day planned, Place Fell above Ullswater this time and at 10.30 we met up with Thomas at Deepdale Bridge and were soon making our way up the steep path to the pass of Boredale Hause.  For a while the route became even steeper and by the time we stopped for lunch we were perched high above Patterdale with excellent views all around.  Sadly though the cloud cover meant that the sun stayed away and the colours were somewhat muted.  Our way from the summit took us on and down to Ullswater from where we followed the undulating lake side back to out starting point; 10 miles and one more Wainwright.  Most flowering plants are at the end of their season now and have died back for another year, but we did find several excellent specimens of sheeps bit scabious.

We enjoyed another stop at the Brotherswater Inn before Thomas headed back to Ambleside and ourselves a final night in the van before heading home today.

An excellent few days away.
