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
