today's walk: Portinscale - Ullock - Little Braithwaite - Newlands Valley - Newlands Beck - A66

very wet on the Portinscale to Ullock path

looking over Ullock to Causey Pike and Barrow

Grisedale Pike from a boggy gateway

looking back at the flooded lane - the slopes of Swinside on the right

looking up Newlands Beck from the bridge at Little Braithwaite

zooming in on Dale Head

snowdrops at Little Braithwaite ..

.. and more on the other side of the road

zooming over Portinscale to Latrigg with Blencathra beyond ..

.. and over Braithwaite to Barf

wet approaching Braithwaite Lodge Farm

looking down over Braithwaite Lodge to Braithwaite, Braithwaite How and Bassenthwaite Lake with Binsey in the far distance

descending into Newlands Valley

the track to Uzzicar Farm with Catbells beyond

zooming in on Maiden Moor and the High Spy ridge

water on the track to Newlands Beck with Swinside ahead

the bridge over Newlands Beck

Skiddaw starting to appear temporarily out of the cloud

I make a diversion off the right of way to photograph this old farm implement which I have seen from the A66 many times

looks as if it was some sort of rake

looking up Newlands Valley

the Coledale fells from Portinscale back road

zooming in on Grisedale Pike
