4th November

this morning's walk: Hodgson How, Nichol End and Derwentwater foot

very wet approaching the old railway

flooded below the now non-existent bridge

a new bridge for the footpath

on the old railway

a blockage but it is easily passed

oak tree after I leave the railway ..

.. and another

the gateway onto Hodgson How

approaching the misty summit

getting closer

looking back at the summit after I have crossed it

Hodgson How from its east top

in Portinscale back road

zooming in on a pheasant

looking back along the road as the sun comes out

brightening up from Derwent Bank garden

is this a bit of Skiddaw appearing?

zooming in on a kayak with Derwent Island behind

the top of Latrigg above the mist from Nichol End

the path to Derwentwater foot with Clough Head and Great Dodd now mist free

mist clearing from Skiddaw Little Man

not now possible to reach the foot of the lake

I got wet feet just on this bit and didn't attempt the riverside route

sunshine on Skiddaw summit
