today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Seathwaite Fell


hoods up already as we leave Seathwaite Farm


looking back at Seathwaite Farm


looking up the valley with Seathwaite Fell on the right


crossing Stockley Bridge


looking back down the valley from the main path


we leave the path to climb steeply onto Seathwaite Fell


on the steep ascent


a faint glimpse of Derwentwater behind Castle Crag


the summit cairn with no view


looking back at the summit


beside Sprinkling Tarn


a pair of mallards come to share our lunch


in rapidly worsening weather Jeff decides to omit Allen Crags and descend beside Grains Gill


looking down Grains Gill in heavy rain


looking back up - at least the river is impressive


back at Stockley Bridge as I risk my camera in the rain for one last shot
