Cat Bells - 4 seasons in one day!!

Cat Bells is noted as most peoples introduction to Walking in the Lakes, don't be fooled, it is still a tough climb, particularly in weather like we had today. To be expected in February i suppose, but we had had rain, snow, sleet, bright sunshine and a gale force winds all in 2 hour walk.
