Scroll down to see photos of the walk
One of the becks that needed careful navigation
Looking up the Lune Valley with the Whin Fell ridge on the left
Elevenses on the flanks of Brant Fell . . .
with mist still on the tops
We are all pleased to have crossed Calf Beck - the last one to navigate
Beginning the climb up White Fell . . .
which seems never-ending . . .
but a group of fell ponies . . .
provide some interest on the way . . .
and one comes closer . . .
as Kath tries to make friends
Looking back down the flanks of White Fell before we head into the mist
The Calf - with two dodgy looking characters!
Christine adds a rock to the cairn on Calders
The sun highlights vehicles on the M6 as we descend out of the mist . . .
with clearer views as we continue to descend
A nearby sheepfold provides shelter from the biting wind as we stop for lunch
Amazing cloud as the Rawthey Valley comes into view . . .
and just a few metres further on we see an amazing sky
Looking across Sickers Fell to the Rawthey Valley
Sunlight breaks through the cloud . . .
and highlights the summit of Crook
The V-shaped gulley of Settlebeck Gill . . .
with an interesting sky as we look back
We take a short pause where the path branches to cross the beck . . .
just above the waterfall . . .
and an interesting rock formation . . .
is spotted by Robb and John
The afternoon light catches the trees . . .
providing a contrast to the sky
