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
