Took an extreme, direct route up Birkhouse Moor which took less time than we expected. It was so sunny and beautiful on the top that we decided to walk over to Red Tarn for our picnic. We sat looking at the tranquil reflections in Red Tarn, looking up at Helvellyn and Catstycam. But we only had time to do the shorter one. The whole day was perfect and much needed. It was just so nice walking without coats or hats and hearing the bird song. Roll on summer. 🌞 . . . . . . . #naturephotography #landscapephotography #countryside #landscape #view #naturelovers #hikinguk #getoutside #Wainwrights #cumbria #thelakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #lakedistrict #theplacetobe #thelakelanders #igerscumbria #hikingthelakes #hikingadventures #mountains #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #UkHiddenGems #wainwrights #scenicbritain #Britainonfilm #ukhikers #rural_love #lakescollective #OurLakeDistrict #ukhikers

On Sunday we took on Middle Dodd which turned out to be a bit of a slog 😫. The views from the summit made up for it although we did have to climb 300 foot higher. On the way back we saw a stunning rainbow 🌈 that appeared to spring up out of Brotherswater. Like all days on the fells full of extremes and very rewarding. . . . . . . . #naturephotography #landscapephotography #countryside #landscape #view #naturelovers #hikinguk #getoutside #Wainwrights #cumbria #thelakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #lakedistrict #theplacetobe #thelakelanders #igerscumbria #hikingthelakes #hikingadventures #mountains #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #UkHiddenGems #wainwrights #scenicbritain #Britainonfilm #ukhikers #rural_love #lakescollective #OurLakeDistrict #rainbow

We had a walk planned today for Easdale Tarn and Tarn Crag but as we drove past Rydal and Grasmere we just felt the need to stop. We walked along the coffin path to Rydal house and popped in to look at the Great Waterfall then on to Rydal caves. We couldn’t resist nipping up Loughrigg and we had a dry picnic on the top. Coming back along Grasmere I saw a clump of Daffodils. They always remind me of my Mum and in one of her happiest places you can’t help but take it as a message. Always missed always remembered 😘Happy early Mother’s Day 🌼 . . . . . . . #naturephotography #landscapephotography #countryside #landscape #view #naturelovers #hikinguk #getoutside #wainwrights #cumbria #thelakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #lakedistrict #theplacetobe #thelakelanders #igerscumbria #hikingthelakes #hikingadventures #mountains #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #UkHiddenGems #GB_GB #scenicbritain #Britainonfilm #ukhikers #lakedistrictnationalpark #rural_love #OurLakeDistrict #daffodils

We hadn’t done a new Wainwright for a while and boy did we pick a doozie!! Gray crag out of Hartsop. It was very steep at the beginning and triggered my chest pains. Not sure if it was the icy wind or the sleet but we soldiered on and were rewarded with some fantastic views and sunshine at times. This is looking down to Brotherswater on the way back. . . . . . . . #naturephotography #landscapephotography #countryside #landscape #view #naturelovers #hikinguk #getoutside #wainwrights #cumbria #thelakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #lakedistrict #theplacetobe #thelakelanders #igerscumbria #hikingthelakes #hikingadventures #mountains #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #UkHiddenGems #GB_GB #scenicbritain #Britainonfilm #ukhikers #lakedistrictnationalpark #rural_love #OurLakeDistrict #snow

Swipe for full picture. Such an atmospheric walk on Sunday up the Langdale valley from Blea tarn to Side Pike. The sky was amazing. It was cold, windy with the sun breaking through and hail stones but exhilarating. On returning to our car late afternoon we found a sweet old gentleman who had got himself quite lost. We gave him a coffee and returned him to his hotel more than 4 miles away at Chapel Stile. Not the weather to be stranded in the middle of nowhere !!❄️🌨💨 . . . . . . . #naturephotography #landscapephotography #countryside #landscape #view #naturelovers #hiking #getoutside #wainwrights #cumbria #thelakedistrict #fromlakelandwithlove #lakedistrict #theplacetobe #thelakelanders #igerscumbria #igerslakedistrict #hikingthelakes #hikingadventures #mountains #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #UkHiddenGems #GB_GB #scenicbritain #UK_GREATSHOTS #Britainonfilm #ukhikers #lakedistrictnationalpark #snow

Change of plans,no high fells today. We took Angus for a stroll on Scout Scar as he seemed quite keen. He was drawn to the trig point because in his glory days of Grey Friars, Harter Fell and Black Combe he was guaranteed a long rest at one. 😴 He can’t manage much now but he did enjoy the wind 💨 . . . . . . . #newfoundland #lowchen #americancockerspaniel #naturephotography #landscapephotography #countryside #landscape #wanderlust #view #naturelovers #photooftheday #hiking #getoutside #fellwalking #cumbria #lakes #theplacetobe #fromlakelandwithlove #lakedistrict #thelakelanders #igerscumbria #hikingthelakes #ourlakedistrict #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #dogsofinstagram #Gloriousbritain #scenicbritain #Britainonfilm #ukhikers

Hope everyone had a great Spring like week. We are off to the Lakes this weekend and after all the sunshine we are expecting more traditional Cumbrian conditions 🌦. So excited though to be back in our happy place 🥾💚⛰ for the first caravan weekend of 2019. Hiking, strolling or just watching the swans, it’s all good to me. 🦢 . . . . . #naturephotography #landscapephotography #countryside #landscape #wanderlust #view #naturelovers #photooftheday #hiking #getoutside #fellwalking #cumbria #lakes #theplacetobe #fromlakelandwithlove #lakedistrict #thelakelanders #igerscumbria #hikingthelakes #ourlakedistrict #hikingadventures #mountains #walkinguk #ukhikingofficial #moodynaturelandscape #Gloriousbritain #scenicbritain #Britainonfilm #ukhikers #UkHiddenGems

Had such a wonderful time hiking the high mountains around Valldemossa. Paul likes numbers and from the satnav has calculated we did 62.4 miles and climbed 22,458 feet in 6 days. I overcame some of my fears of narrow high paths as there was no choice 😬. We spent much of our time above the clouds then walking down to aquamarine sea. I’m ready for spring now. Caravan opens March 1st. Yippee 😊 #lakedistrict here we come. . . . . . . #naturephotography #landscapephotography #countryside #landscape #wanderlust #view #naturelovers #photooftheday #hiking #getoutside #mountains #hikingadventures #moodynaturelandscape #valldemossa #mallorca #tramuntana #igersbalears #espana #mediterranean #mallorca #spain #mallorcatraveltips #adventureculture #adventure #beautiful #naturesbeauty #deia #teix
