The following day it was raining so we took a longish fell run up to the Susten Pass, via several damp and soggy trails. It was hard to get going but after a few minutes the crisp, cold air had woken us up and our legs sprang to life. It had been a little busier the previous few days, with the good weather, but now the rain had come the area had practically emptied so we only saw a few faces all day. It was like having the valley head almost to ourselves.
Next stop…another pass. We’re just not sure which one yet because there are so many to choose from.
