I stopped in Carlisle to see if I could find a good map of the Lake District. Nice city centre anyway.
Image
Then I found the way to Mardale.
Some newly fallen snow over the hills in northern parts of England.
Image
Haweswater Reservoir.
Image
The full moon is rising.
Image
A well made English wall.
Image
This was my first time to visit a bothy, and it was a wee bit late. I was imagining there to be a lot of people,
as it was easter. Some grilling on the fireplace, some people maybe already half way into the dessert, maybe some of the elderly people nipping to a whisky in front of the fireplace telling stories from the good old days, and a smell of cigar in the air.
A little worried to disturb the party, I carefully knocked the door. Hodi, hodi.....
Image
Image
Not a single soul in there. I checked all the rooms if it was really true.
Then I relaxed with my crime novel in the light of a candle in a supercomfortable chair.
Image
Next morning I wanted to make a round in the English mountains.
Bye to Mosedale Cottage.
Image
Image
A glimpse of Haweswater again.
Image
One of the summits. I think it is Harter Fell with Yoke, Bell and Froswick as background.
Image
View from Harter Fell to the Bell.
Image
A twisting path.
Image
Me again.
Image
Backview to Windermere
Image
The summit of High Street.
Image
Blea Water.
Image
The eastern ridge of High Street.
Image
English agricultural landscape.
Image

Image
It's beautyful in the Lake District.
