today's walk: a Lake Distict National Park Patrol from Rosthwaite to Watendlath - then back to Keswick


I got off the Honister Rambler bus in Rosthwaite - the open deck Seatoller bus is just behind


lambs at Rosthwaite


Castle Crag from the path to Watendlath


this route to avoid a couple of river crossings is hardly needed after the long spell of dry weather


zooming back over Rosthwaite


another shot over Rosthwaite and upper Borrowdale from higher up


looking back west from near the top of the bridleway


looking east from near the top of the path


a first glimpse of Watendlath Tarn through the trees


looking across Watendlath Tarn towards Great Crag


the bridge at Watendlath


a patriotic flag at Watendlath


daffodils beside the stream from Watendlath Tarn


I walked the road down the Watendlath valley


looking back up Watendlath valley


crowds at Surprise View


looking down on the head of Derwentwater


looking north to cloud capped Skiddaw

birches on the way down to Ashness bridge


Ashness bridge - the classic photo - a bit hazy today
