A Look At Lakeland (1 of quite a few)

ON LATRIGG 1/7

On the last day before we returned home from our May holiday in the Lake District Maureen and I drove up a little road to a car park part way up towards the summit of the relatively low mountain of Latrigg, just north of Keswick. We then walked part way to the top before returning to the car. Here we are looking east towards the somewhat higher peak of Blencathra in the distance.

A wonderful photograph with the shadows of the clouds resting on the hills - I must go back to the Lakes!

A gentle slope to the right and a gentle path to ascend Brian.
Brian Walbey: This part was quite shallow bu it got a bit steeper further on.
very nice and green

Did you climb to the summit because it was there, Brian.
Brian Walbey: No we didn't climb to the summit at all sadly Richard, with a "dicky ticker" I didn't want to push my luck too much, but i did get to see some fine views.
An intake of breath at first sight - a stunning shot Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, there are some fine views from Latrigg.

Beautiful view that seems to go on forever.
Brian Walbey: I guess this must just about be the northern edge of the mountains.

The hill is very cone shaped but it probably is not volcanic. Nice composition.
Brian Walbey: These mountains were all sculptured by the various ice ages so that may be why they are shaped like this, the valleys between certainly are very 'U' shaped as in glacial areas.
What a wonderful sweeping view Brian. Great day for it
Brian Walbey: Thanks janet, there are a lot of fine views from Latrigg.
Very nice shapes on the horizon

More of my woolly friends and a fine view to boot. The Great Great Karrimor trail event took across Latrigg in June; it not seem relatively low then smile
Brian Walbey: We enjoyed our trip up there Alan, but we didn't have to run or bike, just stroll casually.
A fine composition Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
Wonderful with this dappled light Brian!
It is amazing to think that this landscape is in our crowded little island!
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Tom, but then we have fine landscapes all over this little isle of ours.
