Ice-worn rocks on Howes
Ice-worn rocks on Howes
Even though the summit of Howes is well above the level of Mosedale its summit rocks show the characteristic smoothing effects of ice. At one stage the glacier which carved out the Mosedale/Swindale valley must have overridden this high spur. The outcrops of volcanic rock stand out in a region of high, grassy moorland, a reminder that we are still inside Lakeland. High Wether Howe is the summit across the dale.
