Mitredale, eskdale – a very big hill

These piccures is from my walk last sunday with Mum and TNP and come from TNP’s camera! We went to a place called Eskdale and walked on a part called Mitredale. Up a very big hill! As always, click to bigify!

It has a miniature steam train, we seed the train but didn’t get a piccure but here it’s tracks anyway.

Me and TNP did some posing.

I love going through gates and I rush up to them whenever we come across one!

Come on Mum, nearly at the top!

Ah, we made it!

We found a sheep skeleton, poor thing must have perished during the sold snowy winter. At least it will have beed a bit of food for the wild animals.

Here how I got all muddy. I followed Mum and TNP through the boggy bits and then we went across the stepping stones on this little creek and then I turned around and walked all along it and got all muddy and cool looking!

The forestry commission chopped down a lot of trees! They trying to get rid of some of the fast growing pines etc and get back to having our natural slow growing trees like oak and beech and stuff like that. Peoples always seem to be trying to correct their own mistakes huh?

Next we had to go through some sheep and cow ‘farrow’ fields where they used to be, cos of the winter and rain they all churned up and muddy, Mum found it hard going! TNP ever so nicely tooked a photo of her. You can bet she said some HBO words at his choice of path. Later we met a farmer waiting to shoot a bird and he said we had gone the wrong way.

We had to go through a farm with some cows and chickens and a Working sheepdog be hiding in a doorway, when I went past he come out and bit me on my neck! No warning or grow or nothing! How rude! These WSD’s often has no socialisation with other dogs. Of course I has so much fur it didn’t hurt at all, just surprised me. I very good with my calming body language so he didn’t keep at me and let us walk on by after Mum shoo’d him.

Ah, home time!

  1. That's so much fun you had in that beautiful place. What a gorgeous place for some adventures and the pictures are so beautiful. It's so lovely that you met so many other farm animals but the sheep skeleton looks a bit scary though.

  2. Wow that was some walk you went on. I bet you slept really well that night. Those are pawsome photo's the Mom and TNP took and you looked like you were just totally enjoying it. I bet paddling in the mud was so much fun – I guess the getting cleaned up afterwards wasn't though.

  12. Oh Ludo what a lovely and interesting walk. But what a rude sheepdog. How dare he bite you! Let me get after him!Wouldn't it be great if you could come to Scotland and we could bag some Munros together. (But I'm afraid that I couldn't promise your Mum that there would be no mud…)Toodle pip!Bertie.

  16. Wow Ludo! You guys got a lot of exercise on that big hill. We bet you were very tired when you got home. What a shame that the sheepdog bit you on the neck. The nerve of him. Glad that you are ok.Your friends,Niamh & Ambrose

  17. Ooh, Ludo! Another beautiful walk! I love all of TNP's pictures, of course, but my favourite was the one of you with the muddy chest – hee! hee!By the way, we always wondered – which county in England do you live in? Paul was asking and Hsin-Yi said she didn't know although she thought you were somewhere near the Lake District? She'd heard that there is really beautiful countryside around there and your pictures of your walks are always gorgeous…but I know you have a beach near you too – so you must be near the coast? Hsin-Yi's geography is rubbish! :-)Slobbers,Honey the Great Dane
