today's walk: School Knott - Grandsire - Brant Fell


heading for School Knott


looking down on Windermere town with the lake very faintly beyond


the town and Orrest Head from near the top of School Knott


School Knott summit with Windermere faintly in the distance


descending to School Knott Tarn with Grandsire beyond

School Knott Tarn from the east


looking northeast from the slopes of Grandsire


Grandsire summit looking east


Brant Fell from my descent of Grandsire


larches with Brant Fell behind


dead fox by the wall


now on the Dales Way with Brant Fell ahead


this tarn beside the route is not on my map ..


.. but this one is ..


.. near Cleabarrow


on the Dales Way


mossy wall and stream


daffodils beside the path


I left the Dales Way in order to traverse Brant Fell - here it is fron the lane to its east


looking east from the slopes of Brant Fell ..


.. and again zoomed in from the summit crags


looking up Windermere from Brant Fell summit


looking down Windermere from Brant Fell summit


Orrest Head and Windermere town from the summit


looking over Windermere to Claife Heights


looking over Windermere from Post Knott on the way down


looking up Windermere from Biskey Howe


my return path ..


.. to St Mary's Church where I caught the bus to Keswick
