From Rosthwaite, I climbed up through chilly shadows and into the sun as I approached Joppelty How. Clarity, with Bassenthwaite showing in the distance and streaks of snow on the northern fells. Heather habitat was the dominant motif of this walk, both on Brund Fell and around Dock Tarn. Frogspawn at the foot of a ladder stile. Not a good choice, Mrs Frog.
