The Yorkshire Dales

Before going to the Lake District we spent a day in the Yorkshire Dales, another beautiful national park. It is much less touristy than the lakes, much more isolated and with a very different landscape, but equally impressive we thought. We had just enough time to drive through a few scenic routes and spend some time in the villages of Askrigg and Hawes, but I'm sure we'll come back to explore further soon.
