PICTURES AND TRIP REPORTS FROM MY WALKS IN THE ENGLISH LAKE DISTRICT
Not brilliant but not horrendous weather for our walk this week.
We parked in the long lay-by on the A591 so had a mile or so of road walking before we started the climb to Easedale Tarn. This is Steel Fell seen from the lane near Low Mill Bridge.
Helm Crag from near Lankrigg.
Unsurprisingly with the amount of rain that has fallen recently Sour Milk Gill was in full flow.
A look back down the path.
Easedale Tarn. There looks to be a bit of nasty weather coming down the valley.
Wainwright's "two tarns after rain" from the climb up to the east ridge of Tarn Crag.
On to the ridge now looking down to Grasmere.
The top of Tarn Crag and the weather still looks a bit grim to the north.
The weather to the south is clearer with plenty of dramatic swirling cloud.
Wide view of Easedale Tarn from the ridge.
The rock tor on the ridge.
Looking back up the ridge from the tor and we have a few minutes of blue sky.
Loughrigg Fell beyond the lower slopes of Silver How.
Tarn Crag has a wreath of cloud.
Walking back along the lane and the weather is definitely not improving.
