Just past High Sweden Bridge we get a good view of Nab Scar and our return route


A little further on the unmistakable profile of the Langdale Pikes comes into view


In another direction we can see Loughrigg and the Coniston Fells


The weather starts to close in with mist creeping over Red Screes


Time for the waterproofs


By the afternoon the weather has improved and we can see Grisedale Tarn


Mist is still hovering over Helvellyn


A horseshoe of caravans at Grasmere


Heron Pike with Windermere to its left . . .
