today's walk: Barf, Lord's Seat and Seat How


a shallow ford to be crossed to reach the ascent path


rock step on the steep path - this has recently become easier to negotiate


above the rock step I realise that I am above some valley mist


the Vale of Keswick from Barf summit


Barf summit cairn looking to cloud covered Lord's Seat


there is mist below over Bassenthwaite Lake with Dodd outlined by cloud beyond ..


.. but by the time I have drunk a cup of coffee the lake has cleared


zooming in on Swinside and Catbells


Barf from the ascent to Lord's Seat


Barf from Lord's Seat summit


looking into Wythop valley from the top of Lord's Seat


Broom Fell from the top of Lord's Seat


zooming in on Lorton Vale from the top of Lord's Seat


Derwentwater from Seat How


zooming in on Swinside with Derwentwater behind


zooming over Latrigg to Great Mell Fell and Little Mell Fell


zooming in on Keswick, Portinscale and the foot of Derwentwater


the descent path from Seat How


Causey Pike from the forest road


cloud capped Grisedale Pike as I take a more minor road


Bass Lake and Dodd with Skiddaw still in cloud from the lane back to the car
