Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Crossing Tongue Gill . . .
we follow a large number of sheep . . .
before heading over Brackenwife Knotts
A pause to catch our breath gives time for photos of Tongue Gill to Grisedale Hause . . .
and across to the Langdale Pikes
John decides he prefers the snow . . .
while some of us choose a shorter route
Another snowy section, which John finds too slippery . . .
so he makes his way across to join the rest of the group
A few rocks provide good seats . . .
for our elevenses stop
Stopping for a chat on Great Rigg . . .
gives me time to take photos towards Fairfield . . .
and down to Heron Pike
Looking back up to the curve of the Fairfield Horseshoe . . .
while Ian and Karen spot a photo opportunity . . .
before posing for a group photo
Lord Crag, our lunch spot . . .
which stands out clearly as we descend . . .
to Nab Scar . . .
where I get 'one for the album'
Rydal Water comes into view as we descend . . .
and lower down another one of the islands . . .
is too good to miss
Ian & John enjoy extra refreshments at Pelter Bridge
Rydal Water . . .
The weir at the end of Grasmere . . .
where I spot a couple of black-headed gulls . . .
and check out the view up to Dunmail Raise, with Helm Crag on the left and Seat Sandal on the right
