06 10 2003 - Bowfell with Paul D


It was a very wet, showery day interspersed with some bright sunshine. The weather forecast had been for 60 mph winds and that's exactly what we got. As we sheltered from the storm against the rocks somewhere just above the Three Tarns a fell runner in shorts and a t-shirt came running past out of the mist. He was clearly in need of  psychiatric help - unlike us as we chewed on our damp sandwiches and drank our tepid coffee with rain dripping off our noses. It was extremely cold at the summit with the wind howling around us. My digital camera refused to work after the first few shots and I had to resort to using an old autofocus camera. The photographs were a bit disappointing.
