Milburn is a very picturesque place to start the walk
Heading up Great Dun Fell the radar station comes into view . . .
or is that a sailing ship I can see?
All becomes clear as we get closer
Descending by the gully known as Black Doors
The Lake District Fells are just visible in the distance
Looking back to Black Doors - it's like a miniature High Cup Nick
A little splash of colour on the way back - a clump of marsh marigolds
