Today as the sun was shinning brightly again we set off to do a patrol in the north east of The Park. We parked in the hamlet of Wallthwaite.
Looking up at the snow on Blencathra
And across the field to Clough Head
Soon we come to some snow drifts in a field
We then cross an impressive bridge
It crosses the dismantled railway from Keswick to Penrith. We have walked the section from Keswick to Threlkeld but surprisingly this section is not a public right of way, it would be perfect
Looking in the other direction
Another patch of snow with Clough Head in the background
Great Dodd to the left of Clough Head has far more snow on it
Walking down a farm track with Blencathra in the distance
Nothing on google for this gentleman, perhaps he was a local farmer?
Crag disappears off in the distance in this virgin snow
And if it’s not the snow it’s a river he is playing in
Andy admiring this log stack in a field, wondering how we could get all of this in the car!
“I am having sooooo much fun”
More good weather forecast tomorrow so we are off to Eskdale to survey some bridges
