this morning's walk: Sale Fell

looking down the ascent path with Binsey and Bassenthwaite Lake beyond

just above the wall on the ascent path

looking down westwards over Wythop Mill

curving up onto the ridge of Sale Fell with Watch Hill in the right distance

Wythop Valley from the west ridge of Sale Fell

looking over the valley to Ling Fell

a quick view of Ullock Pike and Dodd before a blizzard of hail drives in

approaching Sale Fell summit in a hailstorm

two walkers heading for Sale Fell summit against the driving hail

looking back west from the top of Lothwaite Fell ..

.. and ahead to the forest

the path down from Lowthwaite Fell

a glimpse of Bass Lake from the descent path

ancient cultivation furrows showing up well with the snow cover

Lothwaite Side from its nearby pool

the track down Wythop Valley

evening shot of Dodd and the Ullock Pike ridge from our house as the mist lifts
