Rydal Water Circuit

Just half a day available today, so a stroll round Rydal Water was just the ticket.

Having parked near Rydal Mount we set out along the "Coffin Road"

Here, further along the "Coffin Road" the view over the lake opens up. We were surprised to see that the lake was a sludgy brown colour, a result of the huge quantities of silt washed in during the recent storms.

A dusting of snow on Wansfell, not a breath of wind today so the mist was hanging above the valley.

Back to the car via White Moss and the multi-use track on the South side of the lake.
Another view of the "sludgy" water, very unusual here in the lakes...Brown rivers,yes....Brown Lakes, No!
So only a short walk, but the fresh air is always welcome after a week in the office.
