PICTURES AND TRIP REPORTS FROM MY WALKS IN THE ENGLISH LAKE DISTRICT
A visit to an old favourite today.
Not a bad day at all weatherwise as Sue, Lynn and myself walked through Elterwater and up the quarry road.. This is looking back over the working quarry to Loughrigg with Red Screes beyond.

The Autumn of 2016 seems to have been very coloufull and here we are nearly in December and the fells are still looking great.
Lovely view over Silver How to Seat Sandal on the left then Grisedale Hause and Fairfield.
