Wonderful stuff, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The colors of the ground cover here remind me of the colors of the south west geology! Worlds apart... Thank you, Ray!
J'aime beaucoup ces paysages avec les différentes couleurs.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Martine! The colors are so surprising and beautiful!
love them patchy colours. Nice spot!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't they great! The colors of the ground cover remind me of the colors of the earth here in the south west!

Wonderful images - Is Frank standing there?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Philine! Yep - that's my man!
Fascinant cet environnement !!
Cela me plairait bien d'y être
Bonne journée

Who is standing there next to Frank? The quilted landscape is special. That road seems to be very steep. In the olden days, when your car couldn't make the grade in 1st, you still could turn the car around and try ascending in reverse gear.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Some giant stone chess piece! smile
Isn't that just lovely - the colors are just amazing.
It is one of the highest and steepest passes in the region. Being a 25% grade. Fortunately our car had no problem... but I've had cars that would have said "yeah right!"

Fantastic view, I am just wondering why that high Wall was built.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That's a good question, Chad. When you see the whole area, and photos of it from different directions, it appears that it was a tram way that went across the current road. I can find nothing that really explains it, but it eases off to the right onto a pathway that was clearly a horse / mule train path or tramway. Then on the otherside of the road, the path picks up and joins the current mining road.
I had to ask many years ago what the brown vegetation was on the hills and Alan told me about the browning bracken. Beeeeutiful, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it wonderful! Thank you, Mary!
More memories for me with these two. In my 1960 trip we walked the entire length of Honister Pass and stayed at Buttermere Youth Hostel overnight. Great times.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: What a wonderful hike that must have been!
Stunning capture, Elizabeth. You could really get your exercise climbing those sloping hills.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Beverly! Oh yes - people don't think of challenging hikes when they think of England - but the Lake District has over 300 summits, and many of them are very rocky, craggy and steep!
Sent you a message on FB. I love this rugged landscape with its lovely curves.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Got it! smile
The Lake District is a magical place!
Super shots Ell', you should have told that guy to shift! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Frank! I think he only adds to any photo... smile
