Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Kirkstone Pass comes into view with Red Screes to the left
The Kirkstone Inn . . .
where a picnic table provides the ideal spot for our morning break
Looking back down the valley from the early part of our climb . . .
on a well-stepped path
Continuing higher Wansfell Pike tops the ridge with Windermere in the distance . . .
and the Kirkstone Inn looks a long way down
The Far Eastern Fells . . .
and back down the valley from a higher vantage point
Topping out on Red Screes . . .
with Fairfield and Helvellyn in the background . . .
and the nearby Tarn
Our next target, Middle Dodd, with Brothers Water to its left . . .
and looking back to Red Screes from Middle Dodd . . .
a new one for Sheila . . .
but the fourth visit for me
Brothers Water with Place Fell behind . . .
and again as we make our way across to the Scandale Hause
Our lunch spot overlooks the Scandale Valley . . .
with Low Pike and High Pike to the right
Looking back to Scandale Hause
A fine pair of horns . . .
and a calf
High Sweden Bridge
Looking over Rydal Water to the Langdales
The Autumn colours are on their way
and the sun peeps through the tree canopy
