today's walk: Dodd and the osprey viewpoints


Bassenthwaite Lake from the lower viewpoint


the path up through Dodd Wood


looking back to Bass Lake from higher up the track


the side track up onto the north ridge of Dodd


the head of Bass Lake from the end of this track


the little path leading up the north ridge of Dodd


looking up the first part of the ridge ..


.. and down after I had climbed it


the second steep section leading to Dodd summit


looking down the ridge from near the top


Derwentwater and Newlands Valley from near the top


zooming in up hazy Newlands Valley


the head of Bass Lake with Barf beyond from near the top


the memorial stone on Dodd summit looking north ..


.. and looking south to Derwentwater


Derwentwater from the descent path


Newlands Valley and Braithwaite from the descent path


Barf ahead from the forest road


zooming in on Barf over a broom bush


Bass Lake appears again as I near the upper osprey viewpoint


fly on one of the colourful flowers between the viewpoints


busy now at the lower viewpoint


the one that nearly got away ..


.. but this red squirrel posed beautifully
