Looking back

                    Into Threshthwaite mouth, ( pronounced Threshit' ) whilst ascending to Thornthwaite crag, with Ullswater in the distance, and a snow capped Helvellyn to the left. In Cumbria U.K. 

This is one of my favourite fell walking photo's, I didn't know these fine gentlemen but had spent a happy hour or so with them. They are looking back at two of their friends who were taking a shorter route down the valley back to their hotel.

The companionship of other walkers is invariably good, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Yes indeed Elisabeth, I'd lost my regular partner so was usually on my own.

What great view; the walkers add so much to this. I had to admit having to look at a map to see where this was. I then remembered that I've been up there as part of the Kentmere Horsehoe many, many years ago.
Frank L Croston.: My route was from Kirkstone pass, by the inn, over Caudale Moor to here. Yes you would do it as part of Kentmere horseshoe Alan.

It looks a hard slog Frank.
Frank L Croston.: From across the valley this looked sooo steep! But once you started up it it wasn't too bad.
Who wouldn't want to go up there to get that view, the inclusion of the walkers really finishes the picture off.
Frank L Croston.: It is a great walk Brian. Thank you.
the hikers are having a difficult climb Frank... it's a wonderful landscape... i can even make out a lake near the top on the right side....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Nothing good comes easy Peter ! smile It is great, thats Ullswater in the distance, a lovely lake that you can take a cruise on.
Looks like quite a hike!
Frank L Croston.: You should see how it looks from the other side Tom, almost vertical ! Fortunately not quite as bad when yo do it.
This is up to your Canyon standards, what an awesome view
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Martin, thats very nice of you.
The essence of Lakeland walking. (I've just booked a week for next month)
Frank L Croston.: I'm pleased you think so Graeme. You have just made me jealous, I'm sure you will have a great time.
