today's walk: a Lake District National Park volunteer patrol around Newlands Valley

Skiddaw and Blencathra from my starting point at Skelgill

the field path from Skelgill Farm with Hindscarth and Robinson ahead

Maiden Moor from the field path

snow on the track into Little Town

on the road below Little Town with Hindscarth and Robinson ahead

a bridge off the route to be checked as part of the patrol - it's obviously got no problems

the path to Keskadale with Knott Rigg ahead

looking back down the track up to Keskadale - the furthest point of my circuit

Robinson from near Keskadale

the boggiest part of my circuit - not sure if this should be reported as a problem
