Heading across the moorland above Kirkland before starting the 'ascent'.
Halfway up Cross Fell and the views across to the Lake District are superb.
The summit of Crossfell is flat.
The picnic 'shelter' on the summit of Cross Fell and a welcome rest for all walkers.
A prominent cairn helps you find the way down.
Continuous views of the Lakeland Fells on the descent.
Descending down through the 'foothills'! of Crossfell.
A few sheep seem somewhat bemused by our presence!
Goodbye Cross Fell, see you again soon, we hope.
