THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE IS A LIVING PASTORAL POEM The region about Keswick is devoted to hay raising and sheep and dairy farming. The 2,800 foot mountain, Saddleback, provides a favorite holiday climb in summer and is the scene of various winter sports. LUNCHING IN A LANCASHIRE HAYFIELD In the Lake District of England there is so much rain that one has literally to "make hay while the sun shines," and womenfolk on the farms frequently help to harvest a crop between showers. This field is near Hawkshead, a quaint old town where Wordsworth attended school.
