PICTURES AND TRIP REPORTS FROM MY WALKS IN THE ENGLISH LAKE DISTRICT
A drive down by Ullswater to the road end at Sandwick to walk a couple of fells which we have walked in tandem before but not by the route we took today.
The lower slopes of Sleet Fell from the parking space across from cottages at Sandwick.
The northern end of Ullswater from the climb to High Knott.
Slightly colder today so the views were very sharp. This is looking over to Blencathra and Carrock Fell from the old quarry hut by the path.
High Dodd seen from the climb away from the large sheepfold.
Soon you have a great view of the Helvellyn fells.
