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

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
