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
