|Our first crossing of Aira Beck. I couldn't resist the gorgeous colours of the autumn bracken|
|Aira Force. There were a lot of people out for the walk, including japanese tourists, complete with cameras. I had to wait a while as they all took turns in posing in front of the falls before I could take this picture.|
|This pretty little bridge was built and dedicated to an ambassador of the first world war.|
|This tree deserves a special mention. Look at the bottom. It grows out of the rock and then up at right angles. Amazing!|
|High Force............ but not THE High Force|
|Looking back, I think that's Place Fell, on the other side of Ullswater.|
But back to lunch and our lunchtime views, too our left, Great Dodd and Clough Head, and to our right Great Mell Fell and Little Mell Fell.
|Great Mell Fell.|
|Mungrisdale and Blencathra|
|It took me a while to work out, but the little white house is Leeming Cottage, with Barton Fell and Loadpot Hill on the other side of Ullswater. ......... I've never heard of Loadpot hill before? But that's what the OS Map says.|
|Ullswater from above Swinburn's Park. Hallin Fell, Sleet Fell and High Dodd (amongst others) on the other side.|
|Ullswater from Collier Hagg|
|Ullswater again. This time from Hind Crag. I love the colours of the Bracken in this picture.|
A really nice afternoon's walk and we were back in time to watch a bit of Strictly.
Our route, just short of 8 miles with 1650ft of upping and downing.
Oh! And we were right to believe the weatherman (this time). It was dry all day.
