today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Naddle Horseshoe


setting off from Swindale


it's been rather wet around here recently!


looking east to the Pennines from Scalebarrow Knott


on top of Scalebarrow Knott


the top of Harper Hills


looking west from Harper Hills


struggling with an awkward gate ..


.. beyond which is more water


looking back at the gate


on the unmarked summit of Powley's Hill


one of the tops of Hare Shaw


Lionel and Susan, our leaders today, by the highest cairn on Hare Shaw


looking back at Hare Shaw, the highest hill of the walk


our last summit Wallow Crag


Haweswater from the slopes of Wallow Crag


rough ground on the descent from Wallow Crag


a glimpse of Haweswater dam


more rough and boggy terrain ..


.. and a fence to be climbed or squeezed through


looking back at Wallow Crag


beside a part of Naddle Forest


descending into the Naddle Valley


fording Naddle Beck


on the return track above the beck


zooming in on Haweswater dam


the last leg back in Swindale
