Walk 28 done in the far west

Sellafield, from Crag Fell

Looking south from Crag Fell towards Sellafield.

Walk 28 was completed on Saturday (20th November). It took me into the very westernmost part of the Lake District and bagged me three fells on a day that did not offer much in the way of exciting terrain, and which was a difficult walk at times thanks to a lack of paths, but did at least provide one spectacular photo (see above) and some other good views. Read about it on the walk 28 page. As of now I have bagged 91 of the 214 Wainwrights, thus have 123 to go. I have walked 265.73 miles and climbed approximately 80,298 feet.

I may not make another walk in 2010 – if I do it will be around Christmas time – if not, I will resume all this in 2011.

Outerside with Skiddaw in distance

Looking down from Sail Pass: Outerside in middle distance, Skiddaw in background

To fully describe the views and walking I had today in the Lakes would require too many superlatives. The best way of getting an idea of it will be to look at the photos (and, if interested, read the commentary) on the walk 27 page. Too good to wait until tomorrow to publish it! (Anyway I have work to do!)

As of today, I have bagged 88 of the 214 Wainwrights, which means I have 126 to go. I have walked 252.43 miles (thus passing the 250-mile barrier today – round about Swinside) and ascended approximately 77,327 feet.
