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
