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
