Kirkstone Pass

(The top of Kirkstone Pass.)

"And it's weary by the Ullswater
"And the misty break-fern way;
"Till through the crutch of the Kirkstane Pass
"The winding water lay -"
-SM Stirling, The Sunrise Lands (New York, 2008), Chapter Seventeen, p. 398.

Stirling quotes from here.

From Lancaster, a day trip by car takes us along the side of Lake Ullswater and over Kirkstone Pass to Windermere.
