|As I gained height the views were opening up, and all around me were lots of Silver Birches|
|The Lakes has had a fair bit of rain recently, Derwentwater a good deal larger than normal!|
|The top of Brown Dodd, looking North across Derwentwater to the Skiddaw group wearing a cloak of cloud.|
|I thought the high point in this image was my next top...but it was a good bit beyond.|
Isn't it always the way?
|The top of Ether Knott...it's got a cairn! albeit a small one. It even had a sketchy path to the top from the South. Maybe because it's a good viewpoint for Watendlath and it's Tarn.|
|I descended to Watendlath in lashing rain, had a bite to eat under the best shelter I could find. I then headed down the valley, years since I'd been on this path...seems to have been improved from what I remember.|
|Down beside the roaring upper Lodore Falls|
|I'd made good time so stopped for a brew in a spell of sunshine amongst the Birches on Sheperds Crag|
|Castlerigg Stone Circle|
Nothing to do with today's wander but as I was leaving Keswick the weather had brightened up.
I guessed there wouldn't be many folk about (there wasn't) so I took a couple of photos
