today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Latrigg, Lonscale Fell and Brundholme woods

starting out up Spooney Green Lane

the Coledale fells from Spooney Green Lane

the first glimpse of Derwentwater looking across into Newlands Valley

looking northwest to Bassenthwaite Lake

approaching the seat on Latrigg with Lonscale Fell behind

looking over Keswick and Derwentwater from near the seat

zooming up Derwentwater with snow on some of the higher fells

restarting after a coffee stop with the Coledale fells behind

the Hawell monument with Great and Little Mell Fells in the distance

looking back to Latrigg

on the Skiddaw tourist path looking south to High Rigg

higher up the path just before we leave it looking down on Derwentwater and Keswick

now on a much more minor path with Latrigg below

an icy gate as we reach the ridge of Lonscale Fell

in mist on Lonscale Fell summit ..

.. but from the lower east top we could look down onto Burnt Horse and Skiddaw House

zooming in on Thirlmere

a cool lunch spot - Tewit Tarn and Thirlmere in the distance

the return path to Gale Road carpark with Latrigg to the left

the ford on this path - low today

heading east with the Mell Fells ahead

looking down on the River Greta from the path through Brundholme woods
