S: lake district & northern wales, may 2012: from fell to mountain spring

FC: the lake district & northern wales: from fell to mountain spring, the soft inland murmurs and steep, lofty cliffs

1: lake district & northern wales wasdale head scafell lingmell peak hardknot pass low strawberry gardens windermere ambleside wansfell pike keswick derentwater buttermere troutbeck the inn at whitewell liverpool conwy

4: we start at the wast water, in the sheep- filled meadows below menacing scafell pike

6: meat pies, an evening stroll among the fells to prepare us for england's highest climb

11: a rocky climb up the mickeldore leads us to scafell. the way down brings yet more stunning vistas from the top of the lingmell, our second wainwright fell of the day

16: we leave wasdale behind, for the ancient hardknot pass across the lakes

17: in old norse, paradise might as well have been called 'windermere'

18: a visit from old friends at our rock cabin: the delightfully placid 'strawberry gardens'

19: and fresh cumberland bangers

22: the stepping stones, leading downward from wansfell pike, along the crumbling boundary walls, toward civilization below

25: horse, human and other beasts in fields of gold and green grass

29: confrontations ashore with fierce swans lead us to deeper waters; gentle kayaking in the derentwater, with keswick town and the skiddaw and helvellyn felltops to each side

31: the road to buttermere, leaving the sheep in our rear-view mirrors. past the haystacks across the lake and on to the slate-filled honister pass

35: a day of sport ends in the mountain garret of troutbeck, and an almost immortal hikers' pub

36: a wedding in lancashire

42: the beaches of northern wales, and conwy castle
