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
