Walking in Cumbria and Beyond

Rosthwaite Fell

Rosthwaite Fell


Glaciated Borrowdale has many crags and crinkles.

Hike up steep glaciated sides for a cardiovascular work out.

what may once have been jagged and volcanic,

has been smoothed and weathered by ice, wind and rain.

Almost flat, with some ragged hard core lumps and bumps

to try to capture some of the lovely landscape colour.

View to Skidaw

Up Combe Gill to the picturesque puddle, the Tarn at Leaves.

Langstrath Valley

Softer greys and blues etching everything from Langdale to Gable clearly across the horizon.

Great Gable

Until I finally swung homeward and snatched the green valley reaching northwards to Derwent

And then, there was a pony.
