Getting to walk up the rest of the mountains around the Buttermere valley that I haven't climbed before. Shrouded in mist with sudden breakthroughs of light. Seeing old familiar views from a different angle and perspective. Feeling the pain of hiking countered by the joy of being on top of the world. Walking down my favorite road, steep slopes on either side, sun sparkling off the water and the peace of having no thoughts but just the simplicity of having to put one foot in front of the other. The bliss of getting home to good food and friends and an aching body in the most comfy bed.
