today's walk: Stanah - Stybarrow Dodd - Watson's Dodd - Great Dodd - Threlkeld


the start of the path to Sticks Pass


the aqueduct feeding into Thirlmere


falls in Stanah Gill from the bridge over the gill


looking down on Thirlmere from the steep path with another bit of the aqueduct to the left


looking over the Stanah Gill valley to High Rigg from higher up the path


looking northeast to Bassenthwaite Lake from a sheepfold where the ridge gets less steep


looking back from higher up the ridge with a cloud cap on Skiddaw


a glimpse of Thirlmere from the path with the Gables and Pillar in the distance


the new made track up Stybarrow Dodd from Sticks Pass


looking back over Sticks Pass to Raise with mist swirling over the top


misty on top of Stybarrow Dodd


looking back to the now clear top of Stybarrow Dodd from Watson's Dodd


looking southwest over Thirlmere from Watson's Dodd


zooming in on Raven Crag, Great How and Thirlmere dam


zooming over Keswick to Bass Lake


looking east from the shelter on Great Dodd


Great Dodd summit cairn looking northwest


descending the east ridge of Great Dodd as the hazy conditions clear quite dramatically


bog below as I descend to the Old Coach Road - hence a quick decision not to try a direct return to the A66


looking down on the old coach road with Lonscale Fell. Skiddaw and Blencathra beyond


looking east to the Mell Fells from the old coach road


descending towards Threlkeld with Blencathra behind


zooming in on the Coledale fells from the lane to Threlkeld


Horse and Farrier Inn in Threlkeld ..
