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
