In the sticks

We spent our last two nights in the sticks (or boonies, as we call them in the States). The night before last, our closest neighbors were 1/2 mile away and we had to walk back 1 1/2 mile to our cottage after dinner.

Yesterday we started our walk at the lake and gradually climbed 1400 feet over a mountain top. Along the way we walked by two youth hostels.

We encountered our first rain of the hike as we reached the top. Finally our rain jackets came in handy!

When we came down the mountain we came to our third hostel of the day where we spent last night ( no phone or WiFi).

We are now in an area known as the Lake District, a popular tourism area in England.
