today's walk: Skelgill Bank and Newlands Valley


looking west to Causey Pike from my starting point at the Skelgill carpark


Derwentwater from the first bend in the track


looking north to Swinside


cloud-capped Skiddaw from near the same spot


looking east over Derwentwater to Bleaberry Fell


looking back down the north ridge


view west from the ridge to Causey Pike and the Coledale fells


view north over Swinside to Bassenthwaite Lake and Binsey


looking south to Catbells summit, Maiden Moor and Hindscarth ..


.. and a bit further west to Hindscarth, Robinson and Knott Rigg


I was put off by continuing by the icy snow on the steep rocks towards Catbells summit


rather stormy weather northeastwards towards Blencathra


looking back northwards towards Skiddaw


I descend into Newlands Valley to avoid the bitter wind eastwards


zooming in on Bass Lake and Binsey


descending a permissive path to the Stair lane - Rowling End ahead


Barrow from the lane to Stair


Catbells from the lane


Barrow from the lane above Skelgill


Causey Pike and Barrow from the lane
