This page summarises our Lake District backpacking trip in 2008.
Our web page, giving full details of the actual route, and some additional panoramic images, is here.
The trip was 'blogged' as we went along, with numerous additional images added later.
The entire blog can be viewed here. You will need to click on 'older posts' and go to the bottom of the page to start at the beginning, or you can select individual days from the index below:
Day 1 - Ravenglass to Eskdale - Deepest Summer
Day 2 - Eskdale to Wasdale - A Sca Fell Day
Day 3 - Wasdale to Black Sail - Through the Mist
Day 4 - Black Sail to Buttermere - A Cream Tea Day

Day 6 - Byersteads to Dubwath - Low Level Heaven

If you try this route you will realise that it can be varied considerably, depending upon the ambitions of the party.
We would have stayed at Skiddaw House and walked up Skiddaw had Skiddaw House YHA not been full.
I am happy to answer any questions or queries anyone may have.
