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
