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
