You might have noticed if you follow me on Instagram or saw my last OOTD that I went to the Lake District recently. I fell completely in love with it. For some reason I wasn’t expecting many mountains, or countless breathtaking views, and I certainly wasn’t expecting such dramatic skies in the middle of summer.
I knew it was going to be nice there, but I just hadn’t grasped how nice. I’ve been to Snowdonia and the Scottish Highlands and never thought that somewhere in England could possibly compare. Especially at the least photogenic time of year. We drove up Kirkstone Pass on the first day and I had no idea the road was going to turn into the view above, I was pretty overwhelmed.
It was probably that it all took me by such surprise that I was so impressed with it, and the fact that’s there’s something beautiful almost everywhere you look. It’s somewhat similar to Snowdonia but in a bigger area, and with mountains not as huge as the Highlands which means you can actually see more than just one mountain at a time.
Anyway, here are some snapshots that I took that don’t really do any justice. I was driving most of the time so didn’t get all that much chance to take photos but it’s the kind of place you need to experience first hand. We also popped up to Galloway Forest Park and met some goats (I have so many photos of goats I could do a lengthy blog post with just those). Enjoy!
