Tolkien country

As they're so popular I thought I'd share the other pictures that DH took of the fantastic tree roots at Aria Force:

The whole area reminds me of Tolkien from the impossibly steep hills & passes to the lakes & trees.


(Click the panoramic for a much larger image, beaware that the image is large but worth it..)

Whilst I was walking the dogs in the woods alongside Lake Coniston I could almost imagine a Hobbit or two to passing me on footpath....

Those roots are really wild. You should print and frame the top one.

The pix of the roots are amazing. looks like you had a great time in the Lakes. the pix brought back some great memories from when I was there.

Your holiday photos are wonderful! Really makes me want to go to the lakes now (not that I need much encouragement!)

Glad you had a good time :)

Hi
I'm so envious of your well earned holiday! Can't wait to move up country (not long now!) because that'll make the Lake District accessible again.
