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
