Scroll down to see photos of the walk
The start point by Lake Windermere . . .
which is like a millpond
A gentle start before . . .
Climbing to the top of Scale Ivy Intake
Bowness-on-Windermere from the ridge above . . .
where John surveys the lake
Looking west the Coniston Fells can be seen in the distance
The group stops at a vantage point looking out across Windermere
A group shot on our first vantage point . . .
Scale Ivy Intake with the Coniston Fells just visible and Tony making sure he gets on the photo
This time looking East towards Sallows, Yoke, etc. and Marie
The forest track on the way to Basecamp . . .
where we find an unusual collection of padlocks
Quite a climb to . . .
Group shot on Latterbarrow
The view from Latterbarrow . . .
followed by a steep descent
With a little more sunshine the Langdale fells (on right) become a little clearer
The Herdwicks are still sporting their winter coats
The summit of Latterbarrow in the distance
We drop down past Wraymires Tarn . . .
and on past Wise Een Tarn . . .
with Coniston in the distance
Scenic view across Wise Een Tarn with Coniston fells and Langdale Pikes in the distance
The climb back up wasn't that hard was it?
Something has caught the groups eye as Moss Eccles Tarn is reached
A scenic walk through Hagg Wood . . .
from where forest management can be seen with old trees felled and new trees planted
We follow a winding track on to Near Sawrey
It probably needs a bit of TLC before you could ride it Ian
'Mr McGregor' who is collecting money for the village playground
A tranquil Windermere scene . . .
and again at the end of the walk
