today's walk: Latrigg


sun on the trees in front of Dodd and a flock of large birds (probably geese)


Crossthwaite church with Skiddaw in cloud behind


Spooney Green Lane leading up to Latrigg


sun on the foot of Carlside with Carlsleddam to its right


is it storm damage which has flattened this information board?


the Coledale fells from the ascent path with the A66 below


zooming over Keswick to Catbells


Bassenthwaite Lake and Dodd from the ascent path


more storm damage with Bass Lake and Dodd beyond


an enormous amount of felling has taken place since I was last up here - cloud covered Skiddaw beyond


looking north over a completely changed landscape


there are still a few larches below as I join the track to Latrigg summit


zooming in on a fragment of rainbow over Applethwaite


Keswick and Derwentwater as I reach the ridge


looking back down the west ridge


the three trees on the summit ridge of Latrigg


Derwentwater from the westernmost tree


Catbells from the westernmost tree


zooming east to Wescoe and Great Mell Fell from further down the east ridge


zooming to Maiden Moor, Hindscarth and Robinson


sun on the lower slopes of Lonscale Fell with the top in cloud


serious water erosion on the descent path


the path back to Keswick through Brundholme Wood


looking down on the River Greta from the path


nearly back in Keswick


sunshine on Latrigg and the suspision of a rainbow from the cricket ground in Fitz Park


stormy skies westwards from the path back to Portinscale
