today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Blake Fell

starting out from Maggie's Bridge

looking up High Nook Beck

looking back down to High Nook Farm

looking down the valley to High Nook Tarn just before we climbed into cloud

in the cloud on the way up Blake Fell

heading for Blake Fell summit

on top of Blake Fell in wind and rain

lunch in a fairly sheltered spot just northeast of the summit

dropping below the mist below Burnbank Fell

ponies on the way down

walking above Loweswater

Crummock Water comes into sight

looking down on the head of Loweswater

our descent track enters the forest

the lovely track down through the forest

Loweswater from the foot of the track

heading back to Maggie's Bridge with Mellbreak in cloud on the right

Mellbreak from the Kirkstile Inn where we stopped for a drink
