Another fantastic day out on the fells. This one felt very hard work most of the fourteen k are done on very rocky uneven pathways. The path up scale beck is a great walk as it follows the water course very closely I bet it's quite exciting when theres a lot of water.

That looks a nice trek, you might have only posted two pics but they are both beauties :D For the photo comp just go to the 'General Discussion' section of the forum and look for the title 'photo competition', but take note there are two headings one is for comments the other for the pics alone. good luck :thumbup:
