today's walk: nearly to Derwentwater foot and then Nichol End

the water level has dropped a lot ..

.. but it is still not possible to reach the normal lakeshore

zooming in towards the lakeshore

Latrigg over a very full river as I turn back

zooming in on a slightly snowy Great Dodd from the other path

Skiddaw, also with a little snow, from this path

here again cannot get close to the lake

Latrigg across the floods

flooded road and path on the way to Nichol End

the jetty at Nichol End is now well above the water
