today's wet walk (Keswick rambling club): Binsey


setting out in full waterproof gear


looking down from the road onto Bassenthwaite Lake


approaching Binsey


this is probably the muddiest walk I have ever done with Keswick rambling club


some sheep are following us up the hill - cloud covered Skiddaw in the distance


emerging through a muddy gateway


climbing towards Binsey with Bass Lake below


on the rough upper slopes of Binsey still with Bass Lake below


approaching the top of Binsey


looking over the old summit structures to the trig point


measuring the wind speed (36mph) at the summit


descending from Binsey summit


very boggy on the descent from Binsey


descending towards Overwater


further down with Overwater still ahead


pond near Overwater Hall


lunch by the pond


strange erection in one of the fields


more very wet going in the same field


mud, mud, glorious mud


Little Tarn


zooming in on spaty Dash Falls


problems in Park Wood


track in Park Wood


nearly back in Bassenthwaite village


Skiddaw and Ullock Pike
