Double-header: sunshine and the highest mountain in England…

View from the summit of Wansfell Pike.

Last weekend saw me (and Clare & Joe) spend the night in Ambleside. I needed to rest in the Lakes after my exertions on Saturday, for I finally made it up Scafell Pike, the highest mountain England, which was the centerpiece of walk 56.

Then, on Sunday, walk 57 took all three of us over the two summits of Wansfell (see picture); a short walk, but it bagged one of the more isolated Wainwrights and, as you can see, was graced by glorious weather.

As of today then, I have done 176 of the 214 Wainwrights, thus have 38 to go. I have walked a total of 567.7 miles and ascended approximately 166,401 feet.

Most likely date for the next walk is 15th or 16th June.
