It is November, the slopes of the fells are cloaked in colour, and after much rain recently the becks are in full spate. This time of the year, the village of Grasmere is a good place to begin a walk, especially any routes heading westerly or northerly; the low-lying sun takes a while to start its day, but the wide open vale warms up much earlier than some of the narrower valleys. With all that in mind, a walk through Easedale and then a return descending the wonderful ridge of Blea Rigg, sounds perfect.
