Wild camp - Ore Gap, Lake District, 21st June 2014.

Heading into the Langstrath valley from Stonethwaite, on a very warm Saturday afternoon.
 Lots of folks out and about especially at the various rock pools on the way.

The zig - zags at Stake Beck, near the end of the Langstrath valley. Well made path great to walk up and great for the mountain bikers that were coming down it.  

Once we'd got to the top of the zig - zags, and Stake Pass, we got the first view of The Great Slab and Bowfell, from a different angle for a change.  

After passing the descent for Langdale, we made our way along to Angle Tarn.

Surprisingly., there were only two tents at the tarn, but we continued on up to Ore Gap. 

Alpine style cairn just before Ore Gap where pitched the tent.

At dusk, I took Tess for an extra walk over Esk Pike
 with views over Esk Hause and the Scafell's.

Looking over Grange over Sands (I think?) from Esk Hause. 

Derwent Water and Keswick from Esk Pike.

Tess on Esk Pike at Dusk, with the route to Scafell behind on the skykline.

A glorious summer's morning at Ore Gap, with Bowfell behind.  

A poop with a view!

Tess, cooling down in Angle Tarn on our way back down to Langstrath.  

Spot the climbers on Eagle (Heron) Crag.

There are many regions in the UK where we can find our favourite holiday park. Camping in Lake District is one of my favourite.
