Footpath Surveys At Ennerdale

Today the weather was gorgeous (for the first time in a long time) so we headed to Ennerdale to complete three more footpath surveys. It was one of the cold, crisp & sunny days, the temperature barely above freezing as you can see the frost on this gate where we started Into the trees Plenty of water coming down Woundell Beck
Looking back on where we have walked
As we get higher we catch a glimpse of the lake again
We are climbing up a steep bank looking down on the lake
We are on our descent & we come around a corner to be presented with this impressive "surprise" view along the length of Ennerdale Water
The descent is a steep one, not helped by the fact the sun is too low to melt the ice off the rocks here
The sun catches the top of the conifers
Almost down to the valley floor again
A partially frozen Moss Dub
Great to get some good weather & be able to get out into Ennerdale & enjoy it
