today's walk: Skiddaw - Skiddaw House

looking west to Bassenthwaite Lake from Gale Road carpark

zooming in on Barf with Lord's Seat behind and Bass Lake in front

zooming in eastwards on the Mell Fells

stormy beyond the foot of Derwentwater

looking south to High Rigg with the Helvellyn ridge in mist beyond

Derwentwater from the path to Skiddaw

zooming in up the Newlands Valley to Hindscarth and Robinson

looking west to the Coledale horseshoe

looking south to Grange Fell over the head of Derwentwater

Derwentwater from the path

zooming in on sunshine on Catbells ..

.. and on Barrow with Causey Pike and Scar Crags behind

approaching the top of Skiddaw after a long climb through the cloud

Skiddaw summit - no sign of the hoped for clearance

Blencathra and Lonscale Fell as I drop below the cloud

descending to Sale How with Blencathra and Lonscale Fell beyond

zooming in on Lonscale Fell

descending to Skiddaw House with Bowscale Fell beyond

the boggy path down to Skiddaw House

Skiddaw House and its surrounding trees from the skirting path to the south

looking back at Skiddaw House from the track down the Glenderaterra Valley

Lonscale Fell and Burnt Horse ridge from the track

another look back at Skiddaw House

zooming down the valley to High Rigg and Great How

the path above Glenderaterra Beck

a faint rainbow looking back up the valley

Derwentwater comes into sight as the path swings westwards

zooming in to the head of Derwentwater
