Cumbrian Landscapes

We visited the Lake District for the first time at the beginning of this year. I spent most of the 4-hour journey the eyes glued to my Kindle (I was reading the excellent Edge of Eternity at the time) and when I finally lifted them, we were surrounded by mountains. I immediately felt ‘at home’. I was born and raised in a small riverside town nestled between two major mountain ranges (Laurentides and Appalaches) so the lakes and fells of Cumbria felt familiar, yet new and unexplored. The Peak District will always hold a special place in my heart but the Lake District quickly became one of my favourite places in the UK. Not only for all the hiking possibilities but also for its infinite beauty…

These photos were taken during our most recent trip to the Lake District this past July. We hiked up Fairfield and down Grisedale Beck on the first day and climbed Green Gable on the second. It was a wonderful weekend spend enjoying those splendid surroundings. I’m already looking forward to our next trip in a couple weeks!

  1. Ooooh these photo are lovely! I can’t wait to see more after your next trip too.

    I LOVE both the Peak district and the lake district. I’m so glad you’re finding England’s best places.

        The scenery here has blown me away…and that is before we’ve had a car. I can’t believe we can reach so many amazing places on public transport!

          1. I thought the places we visit in Québec were beautiful too. But in a different way. I love all the lakes and wide open countryside…
