Skiddaw Lesser Man and Sale How


brand new boots - where better to start them off than Skiddaw - but I didn't make it


the sky over Clough Head

the Hawell monument


the tourist path heading up Skiddaw


looking south to Clough Head, Tewit Tarn and High Rigg


Derwentwater and Keswick from halfway house


Latrigg and Derwentwater


in strong wind I had to crawl onto Lesser Man and then drop on the leeward side to the fence


Sale How enroute to Skiddaw House


the trees at Skiddaw House appear through the mist


here I made a navigational error struggling a long way up Salshaw beck instead of going down to the bridge
this view of Lonscale Fell and Burnt Horse ridge made me realise my mistake


so back almost to Skiddaw House


now on the main path and the correct side of Lonscale Fell


Mungrisdale Common


looking up the valley to Great Calva


the path high above Glenderaterra Beck


looking down onto the beck


Derwentwater and Latrigg


zooming east to the Mell Fells


not quite as pristine as when I started but they have kept my feet comfortable and dry
