today's walk: Wansfell Pike


Stockghyll waterfalls very quiet after the long dry spell


the old rotating gate out of the Stockghyll area


the stile leading onto Wansfell


looking back down the Wansfell path


zooming in down the path to Ambleside


misty on top of Wansfell Pike


first glimpse of Windermere and Hundreds Lane as I drop below the cloud


two boats on Windermere from Hundreds Lane


looking down Windermere from Hundreds Lane


I descended by Wain Lane ..


.. which gets a lot rougher lower down


a glimpse of Middlerigg Tarn


another glimpse of this private tarn


Wain Lane brought me down to the National Park Centre at Brockhole


Windermere from the shore at Brockhole


the pier at Waterhead from the open top bus to Grasmere


Helm Crag from the open top bus
