Very nice image Graham. How did this valley get it's name? Truly a beautiful place.

Regards from the USA, Tom

Hi Tom - thanks for your comments - I've wondered about the name myself - I've read loads but never come across an answer - there is a V of D in the Yorkshire Dales, so maybe it just reminded a settler of it - it sounds biblical, but I don't see it there either - it is awesome, but not desolate - I love the place.
