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!
