this morning's walk: Alcock Tarn

Helm Crag from the Swan

Helm Crag and Steel Fell from the road behind the Swan

Helm Crag again and the Thirlmere aqueduct crossing Greenhead Gill

looking up Greenhead Gill

looking back at the bog just before reaching Alcock Tarn

sunshine on Wetherlam

looking west to the Langdale Pikes

zooming in on the Pikes

looking into the Vale of Grasmere from a small crag near Alcock Tarn

cloud drifting over Helm Crag ..

.. and over Wetherlam

Helm Crag clears a few minutes later

looking back at Alcock Tarn with Stone Arthur and the ridge to Great Rigg beyond

Grasmere from the descent path

the descent path looking to Helm Crag and Steel Fell

the waterfall in Sourmilk Gill is impressive after all the rain

Wetherlam and a glimpse of Grasmere from the descent path

Helm Crag again from lower down the path

sunshine on Loughrigg ..

.. and on the Langdale Pikes ..

.. and briefly on me!
