Place Fell

An entirely new walk for both of us, going up to Place Fell near Ullswater. An early morning drive over the Kirkstone Pass then parking at Patterdale. Luckily not much traffic on the way over.

The southern fells were swirling in mist and low cloud with the blinding low winter sun shining down on them.

 On the way up we spotted at least 30 Red Deer, grazing on the slopes of Place Fell. A fox ran past the herd as well, although not trying for any of the deer.
