2004 04 27 - Brown Pike, Buck Pike, Dow Crag and Old Man of Coniston with Paul D.

The weather forecast wasn't encouraging with heavy rain expected. It was cloudy and misty for most of the walk but apart from a few specks of rain on the tops the day was mostly dry. The clouds even lifted now and then to allow us to get some reasonable photographs.
