today's walk: A591 - Rakefoot - Great Wood - Derwentwater shore

the snowy Dodds from the field above the A591

Blencathra from the very boggy track

Ard Crags and Causey Pike with Sail behind

the Coledale fells

Grisedale Pike

the Coledale fells and Derwentwater from the path to Great Wood

the path to Great Wood with Walla Crag ahead

path in Great Wood descending towards the lake

looking west over Derwentwater from the lakeshore

looking up Derwentwater from the stream flowing into Calfclose Bay

zooming up the lake over the almost submerged National Trust centenary boulder

submerged trees beyond the headland

uprooted trees and flooding in The Ings

looking west as I emerge from The Ings

zooming in on Skiddaw and Little Man

Maiden Moor and Catbells ..

.. and again with Friar's Crag

zooming up the lake over a large flock of geese ..

.. and again over this almost submerged fence

this afternoon's short walk: success in getting to Derwentwater foot

zooming in on Catbells from Portinscale back road

looks OK today for those in wellies

water level is still high ..

.. but the riverside path wadeable in wellies

looking up river to the lake

the boardwalk essential
