Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Group discussion . . .
prior to setting off
Is it all going to be this easy?
It may be misty but it is still warm
Exploring previously unused paths . . .
the stream is normally unseen as we are usually in cars on the road above
Kath and Jenny leading the way with Tony, Robb, Garry and Ian in hot pursuit
A short section of road before we head off to . . .
Broad End and up into the mist
Pausing for a group shot above the Kirkstone Pass . . .
Garry shows off his new poles
Continuing through the mist we eventually reach . . .
Stony Cove Pike (Caudale Moor)
Then it's time for the rocky descent into Threshthwaite Mouth . . .
but what is Tony thinking about?
Arriving at Thornthwaite Crag . . .
it's time for our lunch stop
Looking down on Troutbeck Tongue and Lake Windermere . . .
with Kentmere Reservoir to the left of . . .
After descending Froswick it's time to head back up again to . . .
As we leave Ill Bell a patch of sunlight graces the Kentmere Valley . . .
and the mist lifts to reveal the reservoir
With a few more miles to go and the hard work done they are still smiling
Robb adds another stone to the cairn on Yoke
Out route: Broad End on the left followed by Stony Cove Pike, Threshthwaite
Ian spots a tiny butterfly
