this morning's walk: Helm Crag


sunrise over Helvellyn


Helm Crag from the lane below Townhead


the Dorothy Wordsworth stone in Lancrigg Wood


zooming in on the plaque - sorry my O-level Latin is too rusty to give a translation!


looking west from the ascent path to Sour Milk Gill and Tarn Crag


looking down on Brimmer Head Farm


looking up Far Easedale


Grasmere with Loughrigg behind from the south end of Helm Crag


the Langdale Pikes and a glimpse of Easedale Tarn from the same spot


fields in the valley below


Seat Sandal, Fairfield and the Tongue Gill Valley


looking down the south ridge from higher up


looking back into the sun to the lion and lamb


Glenn on the highest point of Helm Crag with Steel Fell and Dunmail Raise beyond


Steel Fell and the Greenburn Valley from the shaded descent path


the zigzag path comes back into the sun with Fairfield and Great Rigg in the distance


the bridge over Green Burn


Helm Crag from the Townhead bus stop
