today's walk: a stroll up Rigg Beck

looking up Rigg Beck from the road bridge with Causey Pike ahead

water erosion on the path beside Rigg Beck

I intended to climb Ard Crags but the crossing of Rigg Beck was too awkward ..

.. so I carried on up the valley

looking up Rigg Beck from my turn round point

descending the Rigg Beck valley

stormy light over Maiden Moor on the descent

looking across Hause Gate

looking back up the valley with one of the ancient oakwoods on the slopes

shrew on the path

looking down over eroded slopes to Catbells

looking back up the waterworn path to Ard Crags

looking over the new house at Rigg Beck to Catbells

looking over the new house to Causey Pike

Hindscarth, Scope End and Robinson from the road by the new house

the new house from the ford over Rigg Beck below it

looking over the ford to Dale Head and Hindscarth
