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
