Grasmere - summer and winter

My first winter visit to the Lakes since uni was probably a colder than usual one.

Adding some summer ones at at time I would normally be avoiding it, but as usual the crowds thin rapidly

Arranged by walks, though some combined ones on more than one day

Gallery under construction, please visit again
