From Whinlatter Visitor Centre, Keswick, Cumbria. April 26th 2017

Moss dripped on branches, hung like green wigs from trunks on thousands of standing and many fallen trees. The path also revealed cut-outs of slate rock which had little falls of pink and grey slate shingle where I searched in vain for fossils. Tree creepers and mistle-thrush teased us for a photo shoot. The steep path was wide and looking back we could see an array of brown and grey mountains intermittently lit by the sun. The clouds being large and stratocumulus and consistant, later on brooding grey. A couple of drops of rain on out faces and a scattering of snow flakes was welcome. We had lunch on Seat How Summit, overlooking Keswick, Derwent Water and what seemed like every mountain in the lakes!
