Camping in Lake District – day 1

Last weekend camping in Lake District…

Nights were freezing, days were much warmer… though I bet on much warmer weather than in Scotland. Well, I guess not this time…

But as far as walking, views and thrills alike are concerned – great area.

Day 1 we walked up Cat Bells – a hill that is lower than most but still a good challenge and offering wonderful views over Derwent Water.

Then just a couple of random places to fill the day – Bowder Stone, Lodore Falls, Brassenthwaite.

Altogether I gather we walked around 10 miles. And the sunset over Derwent Water was just a cherry on top. And then another cold night in the tent.
