Scroll down to see photos of the walk
The morning sunlight gives a cosy glow as we prepare to set off
Looking back down to the car park and up to Lingmoor and the Coniston Fells
The morning mist lingers over Elterwater
Dunmail Raise with Helm Crag and Steel Fell to the left and Seat Sandal to the right
We make our way across to . . .
Dow Bank . . .
where there are views down Great Langdale with its surrounding fell tops . . .
across Grasmere to Seat Sandal and the Fairfield Horseshoe and . . .
another view of Dunmail Raise
Crinkle Crags and the Langdale Pikes stand out in the morning light . . .
but it is still misty as we look towards Windermere
Grasmere grows closer . . .
as we make our way below Silver How for Grasmere
Taking the tourist route . . .
past Sour Milk waterfall . . .
and past Easedale Tarn . . .
which we quickly leave behind
Tony and Robb get 'cosy' at our lunch stop!
The clouds are gathering as we start on the return route
Isobars or contour lines - no, just patterns in the ice created by the shadows
Robb takes in the view from Silver How . . .
from where we can see down the Great Langdale Valley
