this afternoon's short walk: another attempt to reach Derwentwater foot

Causey Pike and Barrow from Portinscale back road

autumn colours coming on the back road

the path to the lake with Clough Head and Great Dodd ahead

the Skiddaw massif from the path

into the lake - despite higher wellies the circuit proved impossible

retreating with Lord's Seat and Barf behind the houses of Portinscale

a nice sky now over Portinscale

friendly cat at the Derwentwater Hotel

Bleaberry Fell and High Seat ridge from the hotel

this is about the edge of Derwentwater at the moment ..

.. not easy to distinguish the lake from the river

Skiddaw from in the edge of the lake
