14/04/18 - Mountain Leader workshop

Well there was no way that I was going to turn down a free Mountain Leader workshop in my favourite place Langdale in the Lake District. A nice early start to avoid the Manchester traffic jams arriving a couple of hours early to give me some time to try and get an image before the workshop started. With a low mist in the valley and plenty of trees around, there were probably plenty of images to be had but I struggled to find any decent composition.

At 9.30 I met up with the others and with an excellent Ecologist David Broom leading the way we set off up the hills. It was only a short walk today but there was still plenty to see and a good input on access, environmental management, conservation, flora, fauna and wildlife.

Not only was it an excellent input on a variety of topics but there were also some good tips on how to deliver an input to a group on the mountains.

A thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a few hours on the hill, the mist eventually cleared allowing some nice views down the valley.
