Experiences of a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer in Namibia (2016-19) and further adventures…
The Langdale Pikes
When I began my research about a trekking holiday in the Lake District, a full 18 months before our trip (extended, of course, by Covid), the first location I studied was Great Langdale. Thus, I thought it would be fitting finale as our last hiking base. Alfred Wainwright’s descriptions of the nearby Langdale Pikes made it sound like a Disneyland for fell walkers. It involved a lot of climbing over a fairly short distance, but the weather gods were supportive and we were not disappointed with bagging four Wainwright peaks in one day!
Until 2019, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Namibia focused on Community Economic Development. Before that, I was a high-tech executive, small business owner, consultant and business broker. View all posts by Chris

Little behind in following your journey. Great close up photo of you and Joanie on Harrison Stickle.
just amazing landscape. Reminds me a bit of our trip to Isle of Skye, and makes me want to go back. Perhaps retrace your already well researched path. Thanks for the pictures and narrative!
You have anticipated my next post: Skye!
Covid delays gave me a lot of time to do my research. If you have any questions or interest, I would be happy to share my resources with you.
Breathtaking views after what looks like breathtaking climbing.
I love the greens of hills and valleys in combination with the clouds and sky.
And of course the gate for the dogs.
Thanks, Jürgen, for following!
I could have made a whole post with photos of the hundreds of dogs we met on the trails!
