Lake District–1


As we have to be in England next week, we decided to give the North a chance and catch an occasional glimpse of the famous Lake District in a time where not too many other people do the same… At least those were our intentions, yet reality always strikes back and despite being at the end of winter, having not not too nice weather and everything being on the quite expensive side, there were loads of people around. I wouldn’t like to experience this area in real summer… Anyhow, we stay in Lancaster and took the car to go to Grassmere (which is around Windermere – the unofficial capital of the Lake District).

The good thing is that as soon as you leave the main track and go a bit up, the road starts to vanish behind you as well as the people…

It was quite frosty – 4° at daytime, around 0 at night

There is a large cave as well which made a nice background for pictures Zwinkerndes Smiley

Most of the area is obviously volcanic…

Getting down was a bit trickier

These stones are nice in summer but like slush in winter…

In the evening we were not sure which one to take:
