16th July 08 - Harrop Tarn
After we had to abandon our walk to Harrop Tarn yesterday, we tried again today. We parked in Dobgill Car park this time - so we basically picked up where we left off yesterday.
It is a really lovely walk. Greatly recommended as it has it all. Waterfall, tarn, woodland walk, view and shoreline walk. About 4 miles - but c5-6 miles if you do it from Wythburn, where we started yesterday.

|A couple of views of Harrop Tarn. Covered in waterlillies and surrounded by foxgloves.|
|On the forestry path. You can see the Straining Well on the far side of Thirlmere|
|Wore my 'new' boots. Old ones had started to leak. Had really dry feet today!|
|Lovely view towards Thirlmere with the fellside leading to Helvellyn on the other side. Indeed, where we had started our Helvellyn walk the previous Sunday.|
