Region: Lake District
Notes: A rather odd walk, quite contrived to bag all the summits in the area, but as a result I was all over the place and never really had a feel for what direction I was walking in. Spent a lot of time looking at the GPS. Very windy on the tops, but warm out of the wind, still very wet underfoot. Lots of bike trails in the forest make for confusing paths, but if they're going in the right direction they are handy. Hard work in the wind today, but still enjoyed it :)
