Date : 11th December 2005

Location : Ennerdale, Cumbria, UK.

Occasion : An afternoon walk with Jill.

Walk details : 2.5 miles, 700 ft of ascent. Who's counting time ?

Weather : A fine afternoon but with rain clouds approaching from the north.

Jill on Anglers Crag with Great Bourne behind.

Roger was working today so Jill and I took the dogs over to Ennerdale

where we parked at the car park at the western end of the lake and walked to Anglers Crag past the weir.

Beautiful blue skies and white clouds

looking up Ennerdale from the top of Anglers Crag.

Jill on the flat ground of Anglers Crag.

Above are the pinnacles under Crag Fell

but we were not planning to climb that high today.




The cloud fills the northwestern skies

as Jill and I rounds the higher ground underneath Anglers Crag on the way back.

Looking back up the lake

with late afternoon light on Pillar, Steeple (the pointed bit) and Scoat Fell (with a touch of cloud).

The dogs and I were already through the gate

but Jill was still on the other side.


So . . . it doesn't feel cold to me !

Harry (is this the face of a concerned dog) the Lad.

It may have been a bit grey to the north but there was still plenty of sun on the fells.

Bowness Knott, with Herdus and Great Bourne behind.

Those clouds were gathering

but the moon still managed an appearance before we left.

( Many thanks to Jill for the photo of Harry, and the one of myself below Anglers Crag.)
