photoblog image Grisedale

Grisedale

                  On the left, St Sunday Crag, the first fell walk I ever did, on the right Dollywagon Pike. At the head of this valley is Grisedale tarn, nearby is the Brothers Stone, where William Wordsworth said goodbye to his brother for the last time, sadly, never to see him again.He was a sailor, and was lost at sea.

More Cumbrian stuff this week.

Good example of a glaciated Valley Frank. Global warming has completely destroyed the glacier.
Frank L Croston.: Many of them up in the Lakes Andrew...I came across a bus sized oblong boulder once high up on a fell side above a valley that had grooves all along the side of it from glacial movement..

Frank L Croston.: Not too shabby eh Paul. smile
The Lake District surely can't come much better than this, what a terrific picture. I've found my log book from the school trip I went on in 1960 and it has all the routes we walked noted, together with some very old photos I took on my Brownie 127, I might try and put a series together some time.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Brian, I'm enjoying looking at my old pics myself , lots of good memories.
An ever-changing landscape I imagine, with the rolling clouds and breaks of light! Great image Frank smile
Frank L Croston.: Yes indeed Martin, thanks very much.
