Peak District II : The Two Valleys
August 2006

It's trip time of the year once again! It is not an exaggeration to say we were quite looking forward to this trip to Peak District, Derbyshire. The reason? We were stunned by the Peak District scenery we saw in our last trip to this area on the same day in August 2005. So here we go again...

Cresswell Crags - The limestone valley

Cresswell Crags is abundant with rock formations, such as these. The entrances to the caves are grilled and locked in case an idiot gets stuck.

Trying my hand in drumming!

If I keep on practising like this for ten years, I will be able to become a drummer of reasonbale talent, I guess.

No, the image has not been photoshopped. This is what we saw from our own eyes.

And this image too.

And this. No manipulations. All pics are real.

Climbing up to the Thor's cave is not for the faint-hearted.

Despite the funny-sounding name, Ilam is one of the most beatutiful villages in the Peak.
