Sleep on a sum­mit

Trail (UK) - - LAKE DISTRICT -

On a still night, there’s nowhere bet­ter to sleep than hun­dreds of me­tres high. On a sum­mit, you’re mak­ing your bed on an is­land in the ex­panse of a view. When the sun goes down, you’re there, bun­dled in your jacket watch­ing the last rays of day­light fade across the hills. You’re there when the moon rises with sur­pris­ing bright­ness and you’re there when the scar­let dawn breaks the hori­zon. You have the best chance of see­ing a cloud in­ver­sion and you have the whole hill to your­self. What could beat that? Re­ally, if there’s a bet­ter place to sleep, we want to know it...(and don’t you dare say The Savoy).
