Tarn Shelf

Saturday 1 May 2010
Once on the Tarn Shelf we followed the track down to near James Tarn and from there wandered over parts of the shelf and rejoined the track just beyond the gully at Backhouse Tarn.  From there it was over a hill and down to a tarn then north to meet the track again at Twisted Tarn.  We decided to return via Twilight Tarn and Lake Webster to make a circuit walk.
Some of the Fagus had fallen off the bushes but there was still plenty left and the colour was very good in the beautiful weather.  The section off track was a great delight as we meandered past the many Pencil Pines and pools.
