today's walk: Latrigg

Latrigg from Fitz Park cricket ground

Grisedale Pike from the lower slopes of Latrigg

the southern ridge of the Coledale horseshoe from the same spot

first glimpse of Derwentwater with Dale Head, Hindscarth and Robinson beyond

zooming in on Dale Head, Hindscarth and Robinson

another shot of the Coledale horseshoe

looking over Keswick from the west end of the Latrigg ridge

zooming in on Dale Head, Hindscarth and Robinson with Catbells in front

looking south from the ridge of Latrigg

zooming in on the south end of Derwentwater

Blencathra and Great Mell Fell from the east ridge of Latrigg

looking south to High Rigg with the mist covered Helvellyn ridge behind

zooming in on Wescoe with the Mell fells beyond

descending on the road towards Keswick

this road is now closed to vehicles so makes a nice route for walkers or bikes

looking down on the River Greta from the road

some of the subsidence on this road

another awkward section

the end of the closed area ..

.. but it doesn't seem much better west of the restricted area

still some colourful larches on the slopes of Latrigg
