today's walk (Keswick rambling club): High Rigg


High Rigg from the bus stop


on the lower reaches of High Rigg south ridge


Watson's Dodd (in cloud), Castle Rock and Legburthwaite from the ridge


Great How and Thirlmere from higher up


looking down onto the start of the ridge with the Helvellyn ridge to the left


Castle Rock and part of the misty Helvellyn ridge


zooming in on Thirlmere dam


heading along the ridge of High Rigg


looking back to Great How, Thirlmere and Raven Crag


looking down into St John's in the Vale with the crags of Clough Head to the right


looking back south from another top we visited - our longest view of Thirlmere


heading towards the true summit


on top of High Rigg with Bassenthwaite Lake in the distance


cloud covered Blencathra from the top of High Rigg


descending from High Rigg with the cloud covered Skiddaw massif and Tewit Tarn in the distance


looking back to High Rigg from the path to Tewit Tarn


a hungry fell pony invades our intended lunch spot


now there are two so we abandon this spot


a new calmer lunch spot looking back towards High Rigg ..


.. and it also gives a better view of Tewit Tarn with cloud covered Blencathra behind


cloud almost lifting off Clough Head from the lunch spot


cloud covered Lonscale Fell from Tewit Tarn


today's hill High Rigg from the return path to High Nest


looking south from the field path to High Nest
