Scroll down to see photos of the walk
With mist on the water at Waterhead . . .
I stopped to capture a few shots
Heading up Tongue Gill we crossed the back . . .
before heading up across Brackenwife Knotts
Stone Arthur afforded views down to Grasmere . . .
and I searched out a few of the rock formations . . .
as Sheila took it easy on an outcrop
My elevenses spot looked down to the tarn
Looking back to Stone Arthur as we headed up to . . .
Great Rigg . . .
with views across to the Western Fells
Heron Pike with Great Rigg over my right shoulder . . .
and Windermere in the opposite direction
Heron Pike on the left followed by Great Rigg and the Fairfield plateau
Grasmere with the Coniston Fells in the distance
Nab Scar sports a large cairn . . .
which I take advantage of
Zooming down to the island on Grasmere . . .
and avoiding the reflection of the sun on Rydal Water
Ambleside with Windermere on the right
A boat house on Rydal Water
Descending to White Moss car park . . .
and across the road to cross the beck . . .
via the bridge
The route followed the side of the beck . . .
to the weir at the edge of Grasmere
The reflections were very picturesque . . .
as we followed the shore path . . .
and found an unusual tree
More reflections - but I need a bigger zoom for the boat
Autumn colours as we made our way . . .
to the A591 . . .
and spot the iconic image . . .
of The Lion and the Lamb
A small herd of small calves enjoyed the luscious grass
