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
