Scroll down to see photos of the walk
The group pauses for a photo on the bridge crossing Tongue Gill
Lots of sheep out today
Still some large patches of snow on Brackenwife Knotts . . .
from where we have a good view up Tongue Gill . . .
and across to the Langdale Pikes
John tries out one of the snowy sections . . .
but we take a shorter route across the snow
John finds this section rather slippery . . .
so decides to head off the 'piste'
Time for elevenses before continuing on to
Great Rigg . . .
with views up to Fairfield . . .
and down to Heron Pike
Karen poses against the background of the opposite arm of the Fairfield Horseshoe . . .
and the group is persuaded to pose on the cairn
Long Crag is a hidden gem for a lunch stop . . .
and stands out clearly as we descend to . . .
Descending further there are great views . . .
down to Rydal Water . . .
with the two islands boasting great reflections
At Pelter Bridge Ian & John enjoy extra refreshments
Rydal Water . . .
and again looking back to the two islands
The weir at Grasmere
A black-headed gull (or two)
Looking over Grasmere to Dunmail Raise with Helm Crag on the left and Seat Sandal on the right
