Derbyshire Day Two

The second day in Derbyshire we took a walk along the Monsal Trail, a staple of staying with my folks. The path's along a disused railway line which was built in 1863 and decommissioned a hundred years later—nowadays it's a flat graveled track about eight miles long, open to cyclists and walkers. It passes half a mile or so from my parents' house and is the shortest route to Bakewell (population 4,000), about three miles away and the nearest town.

We took the trail to Hassop Station and walked back again. Some photos from the way:

San Francisco is lovely. But it doesn't have sheep. I miss sheep. What lovely home-sick creating photographs.
