Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Park

Last weekend was spent on a hike in the Yorkshire dales national park and the last day so we drove through the Lake District from Kendal and in to central parts out of the Lake District, which is Windermere, Ambleside, Keswick and then on to the sea side.
The hike in Yorkshire was fantastic, but it did not start so well with thick fog that lay over the mountain. But after 2-3 hours up there as the sun began to warm up the air and the mist lifted, and it was only now we could see how it looked like.
Gentle hills with just grass everywhere, not even Heather as there are so plentiful in the Peak District.
Highest peak as we were at 676 meters above sea level, and the length of the hike was about 18km and took us 7.5 hours with all refreshments, photo breaks. The longest time we got stuck was at Cautley spout which is a waterfall that runs about 350m down the mountain, it was pretty cool.
Then we went down in to the valley and we had 8 km long walk to the car.
Lake District on Sunday and not where you disappointed with the outlook here either, fantastic  weather with low mist in the sun and with amazing photo opportunities with the reflections of the mountains in the water and mists. But they do not have any parking along the roads. :((
And so we had a little rush, so therefore i dont have any pictures from central parts of the lakes.

Camera equipment i used: Nikon D90 and nikon wide-angle lens 10-24mm f3,5. Pol-filter and soft gradueted grad filter.
