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
