18th Feb. 04 - Walla Crag and Derwent Water

It was the most marvelous day. Brilliant sunshine. Not a cloud in the sky and just above freezing. Just how we like it!
Started at Keswick and walked through Castlehead Woods and up to Castlerigg. Then along the glorious Walla Crag with the most amazing views over Derwent Water...and beyond. Then the steepest of paths down to Derwent Water for an amble along the shore. About 6 miles/1000ft.

Jetties at Keswick

How about that!....all the way to Bassenthwaite
