On the last day of our visit to England’s Lake District, my husband and I drove past Crummock Water, which is west of Keswick in the northwest area of Lake District National Park.
As with many Lake District lakes, Crummock Water had low lows and high highs.
I read that it is possible to climb up about a mile from Crummock Water to Scale Force, the highest waterfall in the Lake District with a 120-foot drop and several smaller drops for a total height of about 170 feet. However, with perpetual precipitation, we had enough water falling on us all day, so we stayed in or near our dry car instead. (I have no idea where the path begins at the water’s edge, but I like to think that I saved myself from a steep climb up a mountain like this as opposed to missing out on a leisurely stroll up to a stunning waterfall. Don’t burst my bubble, please.)
I wish I could say the weather cooperated, but at least it was ever-changing, which made for a variety of different experiences.
