Keswick to Stonethwaite

Had a boys weekend away with Rob, walking from Keswick to Stonethwaite, along the spine of the central fells, and then back to Stonethwaite via one of the prettiest valleys in the Lakes. Saturday was a combination of bright sunshine, low on the horizon and in the eyes all day and light mist, meaning that most of my pictures came out rubbish.
