June 2015 and We arrive at Foxes Tarn to find is almost gone. I know it's small anyway but the grass, the moss and the stones which seem to have been washed down have almost taken away the tarn.
 

 
 

Foxes Tarn seen from above. Normally the area around this side of the big rock is full of water; albeit only a few inches deep.
 

Looking back down to Foxes Tarn. There is actually a pitched path up here but all except the very top section, the scree has completely covered it.
